Centogene offers a large selection of genetic tests for bone and skin diseases.


Dear ###USER_title1### ###USER_last_name###,

Centogene offers a large selection of genetic tests for bone, connective tissue and skin diseases. These disorders affect a relatively high number of patients and considerable progress has recently been made in elucidating the molecular pathology underlying their manifestation. With the examples of several types of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and familial thoracic aortic aneurisms (for connective tissue disorders), congenital ichthyoses and epidermolysis bullosa (for skin diseases), and geleophysic dysplasia, osteogenesis imperfecta and type II collagenopathies (for bone diseases), Centogene offers sequencing and deletion testing for more than 100 genes in these groups of diseases. Furthermore, we also offer testing for a large number of congenital malformation syndromes affecting the limb and skeletal development.

As the latest answer to the needs of our colleagues, we are now offering all our tests also on dried blood spots. Samples of blood spots on filter cards are cheap, easy and fast to be collected and sent. If you are already working with this type of samples or if you are thinking about utilizing them in the future, we will be happy to send you additional information about their use and some filter cards for free. Please contact us.
