NxGen Super Panel
The NxGen Super Panel is one of the world's largest, most precise, and thorough tests for detecting genetic markers for 113 of the most common genetic diseases that may affect pregnancy and future child development.
What Is It?
The NxGen Super Panel screens for common genetic conditions across multiple ethnicities, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, and Tay-Sachs. It also screens for conditions that are more rare such as Krabbe and Zellweger syndrome. While many individuals have not heard of the conditions listed on the Super Panel, these genetic conditions can cause a variety of health concerns, including intellectual delay or developmental delays that may necessitate life-long management.

Who Should Take It?
• All individuals of child bearing age, regardless of gender.
• All individuals with a family history of genetic disorders.
• All individuals with partners who are carriers of genetic disorders.
• Those considering in vitro fertilization.
• Pregnant women.
When testing, our laboratory analyzes all of the coding DNA in a gene to determine if any disease-causing pathogenic variants are present. By sequencing all of the coding DNA in a gene, instead of just a portion, we are able to offer the most accurate genetic testing available, regardless of your ethnicity. The majority of laboratories are only sequencing a portion of the gene, leaving room for error with missed pathogenic variants, especially when testing a variety of ethnicities. By sequencing the entire gene, NxGen MDx testing eliminates the doubt in a negative result and drastically reduces the residual risk, regardless of ethnicity.
