Courtagen's LysoSEEK

Courtagen Life Sciences has released LysoSEEK, a genetic test focused on early identification of genes associated with potentially treatable lysosomal storage disorders.

The LysoSEEK panel provides extensive genetic analysis and clinical interpretation of data generated by the complete sequencing of 94 genes associated with close to 60 metabolic disorders. The test seeks out enzymatic deficiencies in the lysosomes, and examines additional genes useful for differential diagnosis, Courtagen said.
