Forms for the Universal test

Forms for the Avellino Universal test to determine the presence of corneal dystrophies can be found here.

New AvaGen

Another clinical option for your patients is the new AvaGen test, which determines the risk of developing keratoconus and the presence of corneal dystrophies.

Utilizing a custom panel, AvaGen examines over 1,000 variants across 75 genes for keratoconus and over 70 mutations for corneal dystrophies (compared to the 5 mutations tested for in the Universal test) to proactively diagnose conditions even before symptoms may appear.

Available in the United States in late 2019/early 2020.
