Expanded testing options for PGxome and large PGxome-based tests
PreventionGenetics is excited to announce the addition of Patient Plus for PGxomeⓇ and large exome-based tests - Autism Spectrum Disorders and Intellectual Disability panel and Neonatal Crisis panel. Patient Plus involves sequencing and copy number variant (CNV) analysis of the patient, and then use of the parental specimens to perform targeted testing for the key sequence variants found in the patient. This approach permits detection of de novo variants and phasing of variants in recessive genes.
PreventionGenetics’ Neonatal Crisis panel is a unique ~1,200 gene panel designed for critically ill neonatal and pediatric patients. The panel includes sequencing and copy number variation detection as well as an accelerated turnaround time. The panel has yielded ~17% clear positive results.

Selecting the Right Test Just Got Easier: Connective Tissue Disorder Panels Expanded
We are pleased to announce that our Marfan Syndrome & Aortopathies Panel and our Ehlers-Danlos syndromes panels have been expanded to include a wider clinical spectrum.
Each of our PhD experts each focuses on a specific subset of the genome. As new publications become available, we curate our gene lists and rise to the challenge to keep our test menu current. In light of some new publications and at the request of expert clinicians, we have recently expanded a few of our connective tissue disorder panels. Our goal is to make it easy to select the right test for your patients.
