Webinar: Fabric Genomics and XIFIN

Brent Lutz


Achieving Success With
Next-Generation Sequencing:
AI-Driven Scale and a Strong Reimbursement Strategy

Featuring XIFIN, Inc.

November 12th, 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET


Next-generation sequencing (NGS) panels are a cost-effective option for genomic testing but interpretation efficiency is critical to testing at scale. Fabric Genomics, has pioneered Fabric ACE which leverages AI-driven interpretations to enable rapid case turnaround. The partnership of Fabric Genomics’ algorithms & XIFIN’s platform allows labs to optimize both their efficiency and reimbursement rates to maximize profitability.

In this webinar, representatives from Fabric Genomics and XIFIN have teamed up to present best practices to implement and scale NGS panel testing in your lab with an emphasis on automation, optimizing interpretation speed and maximizing reimbursement. The Fabric – XIFIN partnership makes it easier than ever for labs and hospital to develop, deploy, and scale genomic testing.


During this 60-minute webinar, outreach program and laboratory leaders will learn about:

  • Using AI to scale panel testing
  • Best practices and pathways to reimbursement for NGS
  • Practical considerations for implementing NGS including selecting the right panels
  • Automating and scaling NGS testing through integrated clinical workflows including LIS
  • Clinical services for labs launching or scaling genomic testing
