Globally, Diagnostic Panels, a CeGaT innovation, were first made available in 2010. The worldwide demand for molecular diagnostics is growing explosively, therefore to supply the U.S. market with the highest quality Diagnostic Panels and molecular diagnostic services, B. Braun U.S. and CeGaT have combined forces and established a U.S. company based in B. Braun Medical’s Bethlehem headquarters, Pennsylvania. The name of the new company is B. Braun CeGaT, LLC.
CeGaT GmbH, Tuebingen (Germany), was founded by Saskia Biskup, M.D., PhD, and Dirk Biskup, PhD, in 2009. The basis of CeGaTs success is an established high-throughput process for the use of next-generation sequencing (NGS) in diagnostic testing and the up-to-date knowledge of hereditary genetic diseases. CeGaT is a diagnostic company which is renowned for identifying the pathogenic gene variation of a patient. Single gene testing (which was state-of-the-art until 2010), would not detect the causative gene variation in 80-90% of all cases. Consequently, CeGaT has invented and established Diagnostic Panels: By simultaneously sequencing all genes associated with a certain disease applying next-generation sequencing platforms, the probability of finding the causative gene variation is extremely high. In addition, this approach is much faster and considerably less expensive than the classical gene by gene sequencing. CeGaT has established a total of 159 Diagnostic Panels, covering more than 1,800 individual genes. The sequencing data are interpreted based on the latest scientifical knowledge and are summarized in a medical report. CeGaT was awarded best German Start-Up Company in 2011 and Entrepreneur of the Year 2013. CeGaT also was a top three finalist in Boston Children’s Clarity Challenge 2012 (and the only participant worldwide to correctly flag every likely genetic mutation in all three families).
