NextGxDx Offering PreventionGenetics' Test Catalog

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – NextGxDx will begin offering PreventionGenetics' test catalog through the NextGxDx platform under an agreement announced today.

The deal adds hundreds of new genetic tests "to the NextGxDx marketplace for easy search, comparison, and ordering," NextGxDx said. Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"PreventionGenetics adds tremendous depth to our catalog and enhances the choice of genetic testing products available to health care providers through our platform," Judsen Schneider, NextGxDx scientific director, said in a statement. "Given their commitment to the research and development of new genetic testing products, we expect that catalog will continue to expand over time."

Nashville, Tenn.-based NextGxDx said last week it had raised $1 million in a private financing round.

The company offers an online platform that allows healthcare professionals to access listings of genetic tests from CLIA-certified laboratories, order them, and view the test results.
