CentoCard® – our proprietary filtercard to simplify your logistics
Sending biological samples for genetic testing from one country to another is a complex procedure: complex packaging and cooling is needed to ensure that the sample will not break during transport or is destroyed; international packing standards, which increase shipping costs, must be adhered to; biohazard labeling is required; and time consuming paperwork is needed to comply with the multiple safety regulations of various countries.
CENTOGENE has developed a simple way for sending your patients´ samples:
CentoCard®, the simpler way to deliver biological samples, is as easy as mailing a postcard. This makes genetic, enzymatic and biomarker testing available around the world using CENTOGENE's unique and validated procedure to extract high-quality DNA, enzymes and biomarkers. So far over 1,000,000 samples have been analyzed for various genetic disorders at CENTOGENE.
