NextGxDx Partners with Wisconsin company to expand genetic testing platform

NextGxDx Inc. today announced an agreement with genetic testing laboratory PreventionGenetics to include the company’s test catalog in NextGxDx’s online genetic testing platform.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The move follows the Nashville-based company’s announcement earlier this month on the closing of a $1 million Series A2 funding round to increase brand awareness, accelerate the growth of its health care professional user base and expand laboratory relationships and hire more staff.

The partnership with Wisconsin-based PreventionGenetics adds hundreds of new genetic tests to the NextGxDx marketplace for easy search, comparison and ordering, the company said in a press release.

“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 (pictured), NextGxDx scientific director, said in the release. “Given their commitment to the research and development of new genetic testing products, we expect that catalog will continue to expand over time.”

NextGxDx provides clinicians with a one-stop online shop to search, compare and order genetic tests.

PreventionGenetics provides DNA testing for clinical and research purposes, and DNA banking for individuals.
