Life Stage Screening
Each patient’s unique circumstances and where she is in her reproductive journey will drive which genetic screens are likely to yield the information that can help inform how to move forward with confidence. NxGen MDx carrier screens offer a clinical detection rate surpassing 99% for most conditions. And results for most screens are available within 7 to 10 business days.
Couples who are planning to have a baby by natural conception generally take a set of screens, called panels, that focus on the most common inherited genetic diseases. By taking our genetic profile, your patient can obtain a Discussion Guide to use with you as you make decisions about which screen to choose.
In Vitro Fertilization
Healthy embryo implant success begins with NxGen MDx. We offer a set of genetic screening services for patients considering in vitro fertilization. Our screens offer unmatched accuracy and precision in detecting genetic conditions that may affect pregnancy and a child’s future growth and development.
There are several NxGen screens designed for patients who are already expecting. Our carrier screening can help assess the risk of transmitting an inheritable disease like cystic fibrosis to a baby. Other screens can identify genetic or chromosomal pathogenic variations that can affect the life and well-being of a child.
Support for Your Patients
While you work with your patients on deciding which screens match their unique circumstances, NxGen MDx handles all billing questions, specimen pick-up, and business operations. Your patients also have access to our board-certified genetic counselors who can walk them through their screening results and provide additional details on genetic diseases, risk factors, and the like. Counselors always encourage patients to rely on their healthcare providers as their best, first, and only source for making decisions regarding their medical health.
