Molecular Biology

The end of the DNA analysis is increasingly alongside classical genetics to identify genomic changes linked to important diseases. Molecular biology uses techniques that allow the detection, analysis, manipulation, amplification (PCR) and cloning of nucleic acids.

Precisely for this reason, is used in multiple sectors, allowing to diagnose the presence of genetic and infectious diseases, as well as the preparation and the risk of development of particular pathologies.

Molecular Oncology (predictive tests)

  • BRCA1 gene mutation analysis
  • BRCA2 gene mutation analysis
  • Mutation analysis of BRCA1 / BRCA2 genes
  • Finding a specific mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2
  • gene mutation analysis MSH2 (of genetic predisposition tests development of colon cancer)
