GeneDx will provide whole-exome and whole-genome sequencing, among other services, to neonatal intensive care units staffed with Pediatrix-affiliated doctors.

The firm said its test will enable rapid, high-volume testing in schools, manufacturing facilities, hospitals, and care homes, among other settings.

The letter cited the strain on non-COVID-19 care as laboratories struggle to meet demand for pre-procedure COVID-19 testing and other molecular tests.

Use of the two PCR-based tests is limited to their developers' CLIA-certified laboratories, according to the US Food and Drug Administration.
