MACULAgen

Preventive genetic test against age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

The AMD form analyzed in the MACULAgen profile is the so-called “dry form”, responsible for most cases of AMD. The MACULAgen profile allows the evaluation of the personal relative risk by analyzing two important genetic markers that have been associated with AMD. This profile should be prescribed as early as possible to people with AMD family history.

This test is carried out on a sub-contracted basis by an accredited laboratory.
