Biochemical Genetics lab performs qualitative and quantitative analyses of various markers or proteins or enzymes. The lab uses advanced technologies such as Chemilumiscence (CLIA) methods, Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), time resolved Flourimetry, Chromatography and Tandem Mass spectrometry.
Our biochemical lab offers prenatal screening for Down syndrome, Patau syndrome, Edward syndrome, Open neural tube defects (ONTD) and Pre-eclamsia by analyzing fetal markers in maternal blood (AFP, beta hCG, UE3, Inhibin). Our IndiScreen Software, developed purely based on Indian population data, calculates fetal risk with a low false positive rate and high detection rate.
Our New born screening programs offer routine screening for common metabolic disorders based on heel prick collection method. Advanced screening is based on Spectrometry and Enzyme analysis.
