Human Longevity Health Nucleus X

Human Longevity this week launched Health Nucleus X and Health Nucleus X Platinum, direct-to-consumer membership-based health products that combine whole-genome sequencing with MRI and other modalities to reveal insights into four disease areas: cancer, cardiac, metabolic, and neurodegenerative/neurovascular. The Health Nucleus is a clinical research and discovery center that relies on the bioinformatics, machine learning, and other technical expertise of the HLI team. By integrating all the data generated through a Health Nucleus visit, clients are given actionable insight into their health, Human Longevity said. The HNX Membership product is $4,950 for the initial membership and $2,950 for subsequent years, and includes WGS, whole-body MRI, and eight other tests. The HNX Platinum Membership is $25,000 for the initial membership and includes two additional years of membership, with membership in subsequent years costing $6,000. In addition to WGS and MRI, the platinum product also includes 15 other tests.
