NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genetic testing firm Counsyl has partnered with ARUP Laboratories to offer pre-pregnancy and pregnancy testing for more than 100 recessive genetic disorders.
Under the terms of the deal, ARUP will offer Counsyl's test, which includes spinal muscular atrophy, Smith-Lemli-Opitz, and Tay-Sachs disease, as well as several metabolic ailments. Counsyl's high-throughput technology simultaneously screens for more than 400 genetic variants from one tube of blood, it said.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Based in South San Francisco, Calif., Counsyl earlier this month announced an agreement with the Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Laboratory to offer new combined options for carrier screening testing.
