Genetic diagnostics law
The Genetic Diagnostics Act
Germany, Austria and Switzerland have very strict laws which prescribe the procedure of genetic testing.
A detailed explanation of the nature, scope and significance of the analysis is required before beginning the test (DE-GenDG § 9). After the patient signs a document showing that he understands and agrees with the test, a sample is taken, and an appropriately trained doctor performs the genetic analyze (GenDG § 10 para 2). After the analysis is performed, a detailed consultation with the patient will be again conducted, to inform him about the findings and clarify them.
Genosense follows, of course, all these regulations; even when these analyses are carried out by a doctor who is only a GenoSense partner, we ensure that all the necessary steps are performed in accordance with the relevant laws.
