What is genetic diagnostics?

Molecular genetics is an interdisciplinary field combining both natural sciences and medicine, and requires expertise in biochemistry, biology and bioinformatics. Recent developments in our understanding of the human genome have made it possible to detect disease – causing changes to DNA, which facilitates accurate medical diagnosis.

Using molecular genetic diagnostics, we support the referring physicaian in making a diagnosis, and in many cases, can also make recommendations for treatments and therapies. We can also provide accurate information on disease progression and prognosis. Family members may also recieve a risk assessment on the basis of heredity.
