CGC Genetics

Portuguese genetic testing firm CGC Genetics recently launched a Diabetes/Obesity Mutation Panel that it claims can be used for preventive purposes.

CGC Genetics, a clinical genetics testing company, recently introduced a panel for skeletal dysplasias.
The assay runs on Illumina's digital microbead-based BeadXpress system, and bolsters the Porto, Portugal-based company's menu of Array CGC tests.

The Portugal-based testing company is one of a handful of firms to adopt the holographic microbead-based platform since the US Food and Drug Administration cleared the BeadXpress earlier this year.
