CTGT holds a New York State Department of Health Clinical Laboratory Permit to perform molecular genetic testing on patients from New York State. Currently, our osteogenesis imperfecta tests have been approved and may be run on all New York state patients. For all other tests, a Restricted Laboratory Permit must be obtained before CTGT can perform the test on a New York state patient. Additional tests for New York state patients will be added when they are approved by the New York State Department of Health.
