Create a unique, personalized care plan for each neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) patient using 1 of 2 pre-approved rapid genetic tests. With the NICU Genetic Testing Program, you’ll get detailed genetic information quickly to help you identify any suspected underlying genetic conditions. Having this information can help you create a personalized care plan, including targeted therapies, procedures and care options. Prior authorization is not required.
XomeDxXpress® test: Rapid whole exome sequencing (rWES)
This test analyzes the exome, part of the genome that is thought to include most health-impacting mutations.
NewbornDx™ test: Next-generation sequencing panel
This test analyzes a targeted number of genes associated with a given clinical presentation or disease, such as those genes most likely to contribute to a patient needing NICU care.
Once the test has been processed, the lab will contact you to discuss the results. If you or the parent(s) of your patient have questions about genetic testing or the results of the test, or would like genetic counseling, the following services are available:
