CBR ReadyGen Pediatric Genetic Screening Service
CBR, a Los Angeles-based company specializing in newborn stem cell banking, has launched a new genetic service developed in collaboration with Sema4. ReadyGen is a genetic screening test that analyzes a child's DNA for more than 200 conditions that can affect children before the age of 10. These conditions are currently addressable through medication, dietary modification, newborn stem cell transplant, or other therapies, especially when detected early in a child's life, the company said. Parents can order ReadyGen online and all orders will be reviewed and approved by a physician to ensure they are medically appropriate for the child.
