Genes

Clinical validity

Help

This gene test is designed to predict a given clinical outcome with the highest probability. Since gene tests often yield results that indicate the "chance" or probability that a disease will manifest itself in the individual, rather than providing a highly definite diagnosis, it is important that the test results are expressive. Centogene is offering superior clarification of the gene test results and the implications of a positive or negative result to patients. Positive test indicates almost certain development of the disease in later life and thus it is of great importance to obtain the results, with proper medical expertise, and design future patient management, in order to improve the life quality.
