WGS

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) identifies almost all changes in a patient’s DNA by sequencing both the entire protein-coding and the non-coding regions of the genome.

Learn more

WES

Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) is a comprehensive genetic test that identifies changes in a patient's DNA that are causative or related to their medical concerns.

Biodatabank

The CENTOGENE Biodatabank – the world’s largest real-world data repository for rare and neurodegenerative diseases.

Learn more

Biomarker

Biomarkers play a vital role in the diagnosis of diseases as well as monitoring severity, progression, and treatment efficacy.

NGS

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Panels: Our NGS panel portfolio tests for a wide selection of hereditary genetic conditions. They offer a fast, thorough, and cost-effective diagnostic tool for patients with distinctive clinical features.

Cardiovascular

Timely detection and diagnosis of heart disorders can lead to enhanced treatment options, help to prevent sudden cardiac death, and improve prognosis.

Learn more

Osteology

Many genetic disorders of the bone cause skeletal and joint abnormalities that may seriously interfere with normal growth and development.

Learn more

Dysmorphology

Congenital malformations (“birth defects”) remain a leading cause of infant mortality and childhood morbidity.

Learn more

Reproductive Health

Identifying genetic causes of infertility facilitates informed decisions and family planning for your patients. With 10% of infertility cases being linked to genetic factors, their detection can provide vital answers.

Learn more

Oncology

Genetic testing for hereditary and somatic cancers can provide life-changing results in affected patients and their relatives, accompanied by potential actionable steps for genetic-related cancers.
