Your genetic report helps you to know if your baby carries any risk of developing metabolic and congenital diseases.
What study covers the report?
How does it work?
It provides you with genetic information about your baby’s genetics so that you know his predisposition to metabolic and congenital diseases. This study will give your baby´s doctor the opportunity to establish timely treatments for your baby and know the risks associated with each disease.
We study your baby’s predisposition to different congenital and metabolic diseases.
Based on the genotype of your baby as well as the hereditary patterns of the diseases analyzed, we give you information about your baby’s predisposition to experience various metabolic and congenital diseases. With this information, you and your doctor can establish an appropriate preventive plan.

What is my baby’s report?
Our test includes a statistical analysis of the risk of several multifactorial diseases according to the presence of different genetic markers in your baby’s genotype. In addition, your baby’s report includes information on genetic variants of high genetic risk variants associated with a large number of congenital diseases.
