Genome Foundation offers a variety of diagnostic services with the aim to deliver evidence based medical diagnosis using modern molecular biology techniques. The test results provide information that helps shed light on whether or not a disease is present, has progressed, or has changed its course so that a judgment can be made on what treatment regimen might be most appropriate for a particular patient at a given time.
Our team comprises both medically and doctorate qualified staff. We are available for consultative services regarding laboratory testing, result interpretation, and unexpected results. Please contact us when unusual cases are encountered and special testing arrangements are required.
Molecular Diagnostic tests which identify genetic mutations/variations in an individual – These include Monogenic Disorders such as Beta Thalassemia, Sickle Cell Anemia, Mal de Melade Syndrome, LHON, MTHFR gene polymorphisms, DPYD, etc.
Prenatal screening services of genetic disorders are offered to women during pregnancy – These include Double, Triple, Quadruple, Penta marker tests, targeted NIPT tests, etc.
NIPT tests analyzes cell-free fetal DNA that is circulating in maternal blood for prenatal screening of trisomies of 13, 18 & 21 chromosomes and sex-chromosome linked aberrations.
The accuracy of these tests is dependent on quality of the sample collected and used for analysis. The biggest advantage of NIPT tests is that it is non-invasive in nature and helps in early detection of chromosomal aneuploidies.
Cytogenetics (Chromosomal Analysis) looks for changes/abnormalities present on the chromosomes of an individual. These can include structural differences as well as numerical differences – These include Karyotyping from blood, fibroblasts, amniotic fluid, CVS, etc.
FISH = Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization – This molecular technique enables technicians and researchers to visualise and highlight specific genes/parts of genes on an individuals’ chromosomes. These highlighted genes are used to understand chromosomal aberrations and abnormalities.
Chromosomal Microarray Analysis helps detect chromosomal deletions, duplications and insertions in on a chromosome. It is done by comparing the hybridization intensities of the suspected samples against a control.
Comprehensive genetic data and parallel processing enables researchers and clinicians to identify inherited disorders/diseases along with tracking mutations – These include NIPT, CES, WES, Epilepsy panel, BRACA 1 & BRACA 2, Hemophilia panel, Skeletal Dysphasia panel, etc.
Pharmacogenetics deals with how variation in a single gene affects the response of an individual to a single drug. Currently we are testing for Warfarin, Clopidogrel, Carbamazepine, Statins, Gefitinib, Thromobosis panel, etc.
Sanger Sequencing services are offered to students, research scholars and experts to help identify their chosen DNA sequences, that is to identify every base present in their chosen DNA sequence and the order in which the bases are.
