Genetic compatibility test
This test helps people to have healthy children. It detects mutations in genes and chromosomes which don’t cause any disease to the carriers but that can trigger pathologies in the descendants.
With a simple blood extraction we obtain a sample to carry out a molecular study of over 6.000 mutations and a cytogenetic study (karyotype) which allows us to identify possible chromosomal alterations.
The molecular diseases studied are of recessive inheritance. Both parents have the same mutation and therefore their progeny are in risk of inheriting and developing the disease. This are rare diseases but together they make a large number and affect about 1 in 100 live births.
