Fantastic work!! We are all excited with the results for this patient. Can you imagine that so far three laboratories (Harvard, Toronto and Munich) have analysed DNA (WES ) with negative results. I suppose that the deletion could not be detected by SEQUENCING. We are grateful to you and your lab for your contribution to the diagnosis of this puzzling case. Of course we will share our experience with your company.

"Coordinating Centre for Children’s Rare Diseases Children‘s hospital, Vilnius University Hospital Santaros Clinics in Lithuania has been working with CENTOGENE laboratory for over 5 years. They are a helpful and trustworthy partner. About 400 children with rare diseases visit Children’s Hospital yearly and most of them require genetic testing. Thanks to CENTOGENE, we have managed to diagnose many children and adults, discover new mutations and genotype – phenotype correlations. Correct diagnoses have helped in prescribing effective treatments and setting up individualized care plans.
CENTOGENE employees are high quality specialists and their professional description and interpretation of test results are a great help to physicians, their response is fast and well structured. Services provided are also excellent: physicians gain access to a database where all their tests results can be checked; there is an alert system that notifies about new results; it is also possible to ask for a specialist clarification if there are any questions about the results. CENTOGENE webinars are also very enjoyable. Their website provides many answers about rare diseases and a database on current genetic tests. We are happy to work together in multicenter studies such as BioAlport, Lysoprove, TuScCom.
CENTOGENE system works very well and I would recommend their laboratory to all specialists treating children and adults with rare diseases."

Dear CENTOGENE team,
I would like to express my deepest appreciation to CENTOGENE Laboratory and all those who provided the possibility to sucesfully work together since two years. A special gratitude I give to our collaborator and dearest friend Professor Rolfs, whose contribution has been outstanding and continously stimulating helping us to coordinate the projects especially in feeding us with exiting scientific finding in our field of work, which is Rare Diseases.
A special thanks goes to the team, who helped us with each step of testing procedures by facilitating it and being always ready to give their comment and advices.
It takes huge effort in countries like ours to make possible what we have achieved in those two years, but how wonderful we have such collaboratiors who made available for the first time in Albania genetic testing for Rare Diseases.
Thanks to CENTOGENE Laboratory our Rare Disease Center has helped many albanian families who have their beloved dignosed with Gaucher disease and in extreme financial dificulties by covering all costs fo diagnostic and biomarkers on regular bases testing.
I must proudly emphasize that we are one of few centers monitoring our Gaucher patients under ERT treatment by quantification of Lyso Gb1 levels, which is a direct and extraordinary contribution of Professor Rolfs scientific work. Lyso Gb1 quantification is helping us to evaluate the efficacy of ERT and better individualize the treatment.
I look forward to seeing what comes in the future and hope to expand our sucessful collaboration with CENTOGENE Laboratory.
What a priviledge it is to be a part of such an amazing collaborative enviroinement, filled with such amazing people!

On behalf of Dr. Horovitz and the entire Department of Clinical Genetics team at Instituto Fernandes Figueira, Brazil, we thank CENTOGENE for the CentoDx® offered to our patient so kindly and free of charge. We are pleased with the diagnosis since we can adjust the patients diet properly and hopefully improve her outcome and prognosis.
On addition, thank you for releasing the report in Portuguese, since it will be easier for the family's genetic counselling (they don't speak English).

As a busy academic neurogeneticist, I want the best, most accurate and fastest diagnostic services for the anxious families I encounter, who are searching for difficult answers. For more than 6 years, CENTOGENE has provided outstanding diagnostic and clinical services for the AUBMC Special Kids Clinic. Thanks to their stellar work, many future affected pregnancies averted and early therapy and support services secured for a great number of children.
What I value the most is that there are consummate and caring scientists and geneticists at the other end, always available for questions and providing immediate answers. Nothing would make me happier than to see the incidence of neurogenetic disorders go down drastically….but….until then…I am grateful to have access to state of the art diagnostics with CENTOGENE by my side!

I have had a personal experience with CENTOGENE GmbH for a few years, and I have been really amazed how wonderfully organized their system is and how fast they are. Their work so much helped me and my patients to deal with their genetic conditions in terms of genetic counseling and treatment. More importantly, they are so much dedicated to genetic disease research!

I, Prof. Laila Selim, Cairo university children hospital, worked with CENTOGENE team in the project entitled: biomarkers in lysosomal storage diseases: an international, multicenter study, from February 2015 till the present time and our collaboration is still ongoing. Through my work with the CENTOGENE team, I was able to diagnose hundreds of patients with different LSDs diseases. Also, CENTOGENE in a trial to improve the clinical reports, perform clinical CentoXome® which has resulted in increasing the diagnostic yield for many patients for whom testing for the requested genes was negative. Also, accepting some patients on the charity program helped to reach the diagnosis and to perform a proper genetic counseling for these families. The CENTOGENE team led by Prof Rolfs is really a wonderful and extremely cooperative team and I am so glad to continue collaboration with them.

Dear Prof. Rolfs,
I want to thank you again for your support in our activity in rare disease field in Romania. It was a great meeting at Rare Disease Day symposium in Bucharest on 23th February. CENTOGENE team participation contributed immensely to our event. It's amazing how much value you offered to our specialists looking to learn about rare diseases and new genomic technologies. They were incredible excited about the progress your team have made. I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your time and your help for our patients with rare unknown conditions even through supporting some genetic tests using genomic technologies. And my patients' families want to thank you for all your efforts to diagnose their rare conditions.
I want to invite you to continue to share your expertise with us. Thank you again for all!

I am writing to thank you for the extended testing you provided for our patient.
We did not think of repeating the sequencing of the same gene before, since it was performed in a well-established laboratory. With your results, we will be able to plan for a prenatal with confidence.

„I would like to congratulate you and your team for the exome report on my patient. This was a very puzzling case and the patient had seen many doctors. I am very happy that CENTOGENE was able to identify the mutation. Since its present in father and daughter who are symptomatic and not in the mother would tend to support that it is pathogenic.
Please convey my congratulations and thanks to your staff.“
