Important Information

The Custom SliceXpanded Xpress (trio preferred) is an exome sequencing test with analysis limited to client selected genes with an expedited turnaround time (TAT) of approximately 2 weeks. A verbal result is given within 7 calendar days after the start of testing and will include pathogenic and/or likely pathogenic variants in known disease-causing genes. A written report including all clinically relevant, confirmed variants will be issued within approximately 2 weeks after the start of testing. Because of the rapid TAT, blood or DNA samples on the proband and both biological parents must be submitted at the same time, along with clinical information, in order to begin testing. This test requires pre-approval by GeneDx via provider submission of one or more genes. Please email Xpress@GeneDx.com prior to sending in samples.
