Molecular Lab

Mutation analysis or DNA testing in our molecular laboratory detects genetic mutations at single gene level which include SNPs, mutations, deletions, duplications, nucleotide repeats, inversions and insertions using cutting-edge technology. Lab uses advanced molecular technologies such as PCR (ARMS PCR, Multiplex PCR, RFLP) and Sanger sequencing method for single gene mutations. Advanced molecular technologies include Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) or high through put sequencing to test multi gene panels and Micro array testing (750K) for unknown syndrome identification by examining multiple genomic areas.

Our molecular lab is equipped with sequencers, thermal cyclers, real time PCR, spectrophotometers, automated gel documentation systems, sterile rooms with large storage facilities.  

Our molecular lab results are analysed by expert molecular biologists and medical genetics and interpreted with great care and attention based on case details. Report elaborated on identified mutation, phenotype and genotype correlation, recurrence risk, prenatal options, pre-disposition (if applicable) and detailed recommendations.
