CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Good Start Genetics®, Inc., an innovative molecular diagnostics company harnessing a powerful, proprietary next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) capability, announced today that it has received a clinical laboratory permit from the New York State Department of Health to provide its GoodStart Select™ carrier screening tests to in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and other reproductive health practitioners in the state. GoodStart Select, the company’s menu of carrier screening tests, detects far more disease-causing mutations than any other carrier screening test routinely used in clinical practice. With this license, Good Start becomes the first laboratory to offer extensively validated NGS-based carrier screening in New York, where nearly 25 percent of all reproductive health carrier screening is performed each year.
