- Genetic Testing
Why do we believe in genetic testing?
We are dedicated to provide the complete spectrum of genetic, biochemical and biomarker analyses. Our commitment is to convert diagnostic data rapidly into the best solution for each individual patient. With the highest quality in medical interpretation, maintained by CentoMD®, the world’s largest mutation database for rare diseases, and global data sources, we continuously develop new and innovative products in molecular diagnostics.
Whole exome sequencing provides information on all genes and identifies changes in DNA by focusing on the most informative regions of the genome, for a quick and cost-effective diagnostic solution.
Whole genome sequencing is ideal for finding novel mutations and identifying atypical presentations of a disease – especially for patients that exhibit a heterogeneous or atypical phenotype.
Biomarkers play an essential role in the diagnosis, prediction and therapy monitoring of several metabolic diseases, especially when patients have accessible treatment options.
Prenatal diagnosis allows for the sensitive identification of disease-causing mutations in at-risk families before birth and is offered for all diseases with congenital or early onset. Prenatal testing is given the highest priority at CENTOGENE.
CentoCulture® is a method for in vitro growing and maintaining of cells isolated from specific tissues of adults or the young, or from prenatal samples. It allows a gentle and efficient cultivation of single-cell suspensions from human cell cultures.
Comparative genomic hybridization is a molecular cytogenetic method for analyzing copy number variations. CGH array allows us to quickly and efficiently determine the relative abundance of nucleic acid sequences in the target sample.
