NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — German genetic diagnostics firm CeGaT said today that it has received CLIA certification for its laboratory in Tübingen.
With the new certification in hand, the company plans to expand its business in the US. Two years ago, CeGaT founded a subsidiary, B. Braun CeGaT, based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
The new certification comes about a year after CeGaT's laboratory obtained CAP accreditation. In addition, the company has been accredited according to DIN EN ISO 15189:2014 standards since 2011.
CeGaT focuses on hereditary disease diagnostics using gene panel sequencing and exome sequencing.
