Gene Diagnostics Act

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland there are strict legal regulations that prescribe the procedure of a genetic test.

Thus, a detailed explanation of the nature, scope and significance of the analysis is required even before it is started (DE-GenDG §9). After sample collection and preliminary genetic counseling, a consent form must be signed by the patient and an appropriately trained physician must then request the genetic analysis (GenDG §10 Abs 2). After the result has been produced, a detailed consultation on the result must take place again.

All Novogenia processes naturally adhere to these regulations. So when you have these analyses performed by a Novogenia partner physician, the legally compliant processing is taken care of.

If you order this analysis yourself, a physician’s form will be sent to you with the sample kit. This form must be signed by your qualified physician and sent to our laboratory. Genetic counseling before and after the analysis is provided by your physician with the help of comprehensive information materials.
