Guide to Disease-Specific Results with Next Gen Screening

This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to access disease-specific results using our advanced Next Gen Disease Screening tool. For demonstration purposes, we’ll use Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) as our reference disease. However, the same steps can be applied to any of the thousands of diseases covered by our screening tool. For a comprehensive list of all conditions and diseases covered by the Next Gen Disease Screening, please click HERE. While this guide uses EDS as an example, the process remains consistent for all diseases. Simply substitute “Ehlers Danlos” with the name of the disease or condition you’re interested in.

By default, the Explore Data section of your Next Gen Disease Screening will only display variants with High Confidence ratings that may have a potential health impact. If you wish to view your genetic makeup for all variants associated with EDS, follow the instructions provided below.
