Please be advised that specimen deliveries to PreventionGenetics via FedEx have been delayed several days due to inclement weather at their hub in Tennessee. We continue to work closely with FedEx to receive specimens as quickly as possible. We are also exploring options to alter our operations to process specimens as soon as they arrive. Nevertheless, the storms in Tennessee will affect turnaround times in the short term.
