Overview

CGT is an advanced carrier genetic test before pregnancy, which determines whether a couple is a carrier of genetic mutations that could be transmitted to their children.

It analises disorders such as Cystic Fibrosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Fragile-X Syndrome amongst others by NGS.

Overview

Benefits

  • Study on more than 6,000 mutations associated with over 600 genetic disorders.
  • Genetic counseling for patients and specialists.
  • Availability of a specific module for gamete donation programs.
  • Genetic screening test based on massive sequencing (NGS) and clinically validated.

Indications

  • For any couple who wants to form a family to know the risk of transmitting hereditary disorders to their children.
  • Before an assisted reproduction treatment.
  • Before a treatment with donor sperm or eggs.

Most carriers of genetic mutations don’t have a family history of these disorders.

Indications

Methodology

How is a carrier screening performed?

Results

POSITIVE +

NEGATIVE -

The tested person carries a mutation in a particular gene. The test should be carried out in the other member of the couple.

A negative result indicates that the person doesn’t carry any of the mutations studied.
There is still a small risk of carrying another mutation not analyzed by the test.
