By sequencing all human genes at once (whole exome and whole genome sequencing), genetic testing can be done in the blink of an eye. Based on the clinical information, we can look immediately at the most appropriate gene or panel or go straight to the interpretation of all data. For every clinical case, we have the right solution.

Breda Genetics deploys an articulated portfolio of tests, which comprises four different whole exome sequencing solutions (MENDEL FULL, EXOME 15MB, EXOME 60MB, EXOME 90MB), whole genome sequencing 30x (GENOME FULL), a list of hundreds of fully customizable exome or genome-based multigene panels (EXOME PANEL, GENOME PANEL), and a complete range of other forefront solutions and ancillary services, from exonic/multiexonic algorithmic CNV analysis based on NGS data (EXOME CNV, GENOME CNV), to family segregation studies, MLPA/qPCR and repeat expansion testing (SANGER CARRIER, SANGER GENE, MLPA/qPCR GENE, REPEAT PLUS).

The landscape of clinical genetics worldwide is often marked by widespread difficulty in accessing genetic counselling and genetic testing, either for geographical reasons, limited budgets or absence of equipped facilities. We make a point of giving access to medical genetics services to as many people as possible, offering acceptable turnaround times and fees. If you are unsure on whether you are in need of genetic testing, please request your genetic counseling now.

Practical guide to genetic testing in pediatrics

If you are not a Geneticist and you have to approach the world of genetic testing, you may have some difficulty in choosing the best test for your patient. In recent years, thanks to the advancement of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies, the lowering of their costs and the increase in knowledge about genetic diseases, the […]

Genetic testing and sport: can sudden death be prevented?

Anyone, supporter or not, was shocked by what happened during the Denmark-Finland match of the UEFA EURO 2020. A player from the Danish national team, Christian Eriksen, collapsed due to cardiac arrest. Timely intervention was provided first of all by his teammates and subsequently by the specialized medical team, who, thanks also to the help […]


Panel testing recommended at Breda Genetics for this condition: Pan269 Hereditary Amyloidosis (APOA1, APP, B2M, CST3, GPNMB, GSN, FGA, IL31RA, ITM2B, LYZ, OSMR, PRNP, TACSTD2, TTR) Amyloidoses are a group of rare disorders caused by extracellular deposition of insoluble fibers made of misfolded proteins, which take the name of “amyloid”. These deposits damage tissues and interfere with […]


Thalassemia refers to a group of hereditary quantitative hemoglobinopathies, blood disorders that derive from a quantitative reduction of the synthesis of the globin chains of hemoglobin. On the basis of the genetic defect, they are divided into alpha and beta-thalassemia and are both inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. Thalassemias have wide phenotypic variability, from […]


Panel testing recommended at Breda Genetics for this condition: Pan251 Galactosemia (GALE, GALK1, GALM, GALT) Galactosemia includes a group of rare metabolic disorders due to the body’s inability to metabolize galactose, a carbohydrate contained in milk and its derivatives, which consequently accumulates in the blood. It is a congenital genetic defect, transmitted in an autosomal […]

Bartter syndrome

Panel testing recommended at Breda Genetics for this condition: Bartter syndrome (BSND, CASR, CLCNKA, CLCNKB, KCNJ1, MAGED2, SLC12A1, SLC12A3) Bartter syndrome (whose name derives from the endocrinologist who discovered it in 1962) includes a group of rare kidney diseases that belong to the class of primitive tubulopathies or salt-losing tubulopathies. These diseases are due to […]

Turner syndrome (chromosome X monosomy)

Turner syndrome, also known as monosomy of the X chromosome, is a chromosomal disorder due to the total (monosomy) or partial absence of an X chromosome in a female individual. Turner syndrome is characterized by a wide phenotypic variability, which includes very serious clinical pictures that are evident even before birth to very blurred pictures in […]

CAVD (Congenital Absence of the Vas Deferens): is it possible to become a father?

Congenital absence of vas deferens (CAVD), also known as CBAVD (when is bilateral), is a genetic condition due to the total or partial non-development of the vas deferens, whose task is to transport sperm. CAVD is one of the main causes of obstructive azoospermia, responsible for numerous cases of male infertility. Obstructive azoospermia is the […]
