In 2014, B. Braun CeGaT, LLC, was established as a partnership between B. Braun Medical and CeGaT to offer advanced molecular diagnostic services to US-based health care providers. With B. Braun’s proven history of enhancing patient care and safety and CeGaT’s pioneering advancements in sequencing-based diagnostics, the joint venture is well positioned to bring personalized medicine to the clinical setting. Our services are aimed at enabling physicians to precisely determine the molecular cause of an individual’s disease. Using this information, a specific diagnosis can be made, and the optimal course of treatment can be selected based on the patient’s unique genetic profile.
It is our goal to serve the US health care market with a dedicated team and the highest possible standard in molecular diagnostics.

Saskia Biskup about CeGaT
CeGaT is a leading global provider of genetic diagnostics and mutation-related disease analyses. By pioneering the approach of combining genetic diagnostics with high-throughput sequencing, CeGaT was the first company to develop the so-called Diagnostic Panels. These Diagnostic Panels allowed for the first time ever mapping and analyzing all genes associated with a certain disease. Meanwhile, we launched Diagnostic Panels for a broad range of disease categories. Therefore, CeGaT is able to dramatically improve the accuracy and speed of diagnosis, leading to more targeted and effective treatments, better quality of patient care, and significant cost reduction to the health care industry.
Since its founding in 2009, CeGaT has been the recipient of multiple awards including German Founders Award for Best Start-Up Company 2011, “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2013, and “Service Provider of the Year 2014” by the State of Baden-Württemberg.
We are here to assist. Whether you’re interested in the investigation of gene sequencing or DNA diagnostics, we will help you every step of the way.
