Carrier screening is a genetic test used to determine if a healthy person is a carrier of a recessive genetic disease. The goal of carrier screening is to help individuals understand their risks of having a child with a genetic disorder and review the range of options available to guide pregnancy…
Carrier screening is a predictive genetic testing, designed for future parents. Would you like to learn more and understand it better? Watch our recorded webinar about CentoScreen®: "What you need to know about expanded carrier screening"
Ovarian cancer is the most lethal of all gynecological cancers, and the annual incidence of ovarian cancer is 12.1 per 100,000 women. Familial ovarian carcinoma has been described in the context of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC) syndrome. Inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion, HBOC…
Validation of a semiconductor next-generation sequencing assay for the clinical genetic screening of CFTR
Genetic testing for cystic fibrosis and CFTR-related disorders mostly relies on laborious molecular tools that use Sanger sequencing to scan for mutations in the CFTR gene. We have explored a more efficient genetic screening strategy based on next-generation sequencing of the CFTR gene.
