GeneDx has expanded its Dilated Cardiomyopathy Panel, for which it uses next-gen sequencing to look at genes associated with inherited forms of DCM. The company recently added 11 new genes to the panel, to assess a total of 38 genes. According to the company, the new additions are expected to increase the panel's detection rate by about 20 percent.
