With the Family Planning Panel, you can determine your childs’ risk for possible hereditary diseases even before pregnancy. Many people carry disease-causing variants in their genetic material without knowing it and without becoming ill themselves. For example, if both parents are carriers of a disease-causing gene variant, there is a 25 percent risk of having a child with this hereditary disease. With the Family Planning Panel, both common genetic disorders, such as cystic fibrosis or spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), as well as very rare syndromes, are specifically investigated. For the evaluation, we combine the genetic data of both parents and determine the risk for your child.
The result of the genetic testing, in combination with genetic counseling, allows you to make an informed decision. In this way, you can inform yourself at an early stage about the various options, such as prenatal diagnostics or early, targeted treatment of the newborn.
The Diagnostic Panel for Fertility identifies the genetic cause of involuntary childlessness. An appropriate diagnosis provides you with clarity. Based on the findings, the attending physicians can further improve the chances of having a child. A molecular genetic examination can determine specific treatment options.
For example, in the case of a congenital hormone disorder, specific hormone therapy can be offered. If a fertility disorder exists due to a tendency to thrombosis, this can be specifically treated with medication.
