CeGaT Diagnostic Panels
CeGaT has launched a diagnostic panel for hereditary childhood liver diseases, and updated its diagnostic panel for epilepsy, metabolic, and brain development disorders.The new diagnostic panel for childhood liver disease was designed in collaboration with Ekkehard Sturm, assistant medical of gastroenterology at the University Children's Hospital, Tübingen. The panel is composed of eight gene sets with 118 genes in total, and offers the rapid and simultaneous analysis of all disease-associated genes known to be causative for hereditary childhood liver diseases. The updated panel for epilepsy, metabolic, and brain development disorders sub-divides 639 relevant genes into 28 gene-subsets according to their clinical importance for the single areas of disease. The latest update includes 265 new genes.
