New York
Approved


Clinical Utility

  • Determination of a clinical diagnosis
  • Identification of gene implicated in genetic disease
  • Recurrence risk assessment

Important Information

The GenomeXpress test is whole genome sequencing 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 reported within approximately 2 weeks after the start of testing. Because of the rapid TAT, blood 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 approval by GeneDx; please email Xpress@GeneDx.com to discuss prior to sending in samples.
