Finding the Missing Pieces of Information

When examining genetic variants, the decisions you have to make about best interpretation and proper treatment affect your patient’s health and medical outcome. Having all available data and information is crucial for your diagnoses.

Learn How it Works!

CentoMD® 5.3 features bridge the gap between genetic variants and clinical interpretation

  • Advanced genotype-phenotype and phenotype-genotype modules: now with access to more than 7.3 million unique variants. Besides variant-based queries, you are able to perform symptoms-based queries based on Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO), which return potential candidate genes and associated variants underlying the symptoms of interest.
  • Combining precise clinical genetic and biomarker information: this unique combination standardizes and expedites the medical interpretation of disease causing variants, coming from more than 310,000 individuals located in more than 115 countries.
  • Annotation of genetic variants contained in a vcf file: you can upload a batch of variants included in a VCF file and in turn retrieve clinical significance for the variants detected in individual all at once.

  • An interactive search interface: you are given the flexibility to perform search, sort, filter, and data export functions, all with a simple click.

  • Data export functions: you can export data into a read-only Excel file.

Frequently asked questions

CentoMD® provides anonymized annotations of variants detected in individuals who were referred for genetic testing by their physicians to evaluate whether they are affected by or are carriers of mutations that cause rare hereditary diseases.

CentoMD® is a comprehensive database that combines phenotype and genotype information. This means that every variant reported in CentoMD® is annotated based on at least one clinically described individual analyzed through a standardized and accredited workflow at CENTOGENE AG. CentoMD® provides three modules; Genotype to Phenotype, Phenotype to Genotype and vcf upload, which assist users in evaluating the correlation between genetic and phenotypic information.

Please see the Handbook for a comprehensive description of the data provided by CentoMD®.

Curation is the process of collection, association, and review of genetic and phenotypic data for individuals genetically analyzed at CENTOGENE AG into a structured and standardized format. It utilizes a combination of computer-based tools and manual review to assure the accuracy of the data and the efficiency of the curation process. To provide high-quality data, the curation process at CENTOGENE AG involves a three-step procedure, which is described in the Handbook and available for download.

A detailed user guide provides instructions for the proper use of CentoMD®, including how to signup, how to manage your account, and how to query, access, and retrieve information.

Yes, all of your activated variants are stored on your user profile. Under the header “My exports”, a list of all activated variants is available.

When any of your activated variants are re-classified due to additional evidence, you will be notified via e-mail.

CENTOGENE AG will provide quarterly releases of an updated CentoMD®.

If you wish to reference CentoMD®, it is important to include the current release number because the annotation class of the variant you are referring to may change over time due to additional evidence. The release number allows you to distinguish between previous and current versions of CentoMD®.

CentoMDx™ diagnostic service

Diagnosing a patient with a rare disease is a complex task because not all existing genetic variants have been described or precisely annotated. Medical professionals need to obtain all available knowledge about the detected genetic variants in a patient in order to establish a possible most accurate diagnosis.

CentoMDxTM evaluates genetic data and provides a diagnostic report in three steps:

• Annotation of the variants from the uploaded VCF file

• Clear diagnostic statement based on detected pathogenic and likely pathogenic variants

• Extended individual variant interpretation, including software predictions, allele frequencies in various databases, reference to publications, related disease description and information about positive diagnosed patients analyzed at CENTOGENE

• Report storage and export functions

• User notification about any reclassified reported variants in the future

Generating your report with minimum effort and time

Every report generated by CentoMDx™ requires minimum effort and time from the user in order to provide the diagnosis based on the logic originated from and supported by extensive knowledge of the genetic variants in 26 of the genes stored in CentoMD®.

The diagnostic statement in the report provides information on the presence of a disease based on detected pathogenic and likely pathogenic variants taking in account mode of inheritance of the disease as well as gender of the patient.
