We offer following tests:

1. Prenatal Molecular Diagnostics

a. Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH) based analysis of Amniotic Fluid, Chorionic Villus, Umbilical chord Blood for following tests

1. Chromosomal analysis of 13, 18, 21, X & Y. An interphase FISH technique, allows for rapid detection of the common trisomies in amniotic fluid, chorionic villi, and newborn blood samples. These results are available in 24 to 48 hours of receipt of samples.

2. Microdeletion Studies These are available for following diseases Angelman, Cri-du-chat, DiGeorge/Velocardiofacial, Kallman, Miller-Dieker, Prader-Willi, Smith-Magenis, Steroid Sulfatase Deficiency, Williams, Wolf-Hirschhorn.

b. Biochemical Genetics

1. Triple & Quadruple Maternal Marker for Neural tubal Defects, Down's syndrome & other chromosomal anueploidies. Maternal Blood is screened for AFP, hCG, uE3, Inhibin.

2. Post Natal & Adult Molecular Genetics

This is the list of diseases that can be analyzed by Molecular Biology techniques grows the list given is not exhaustive. Please contact us for tests not listed here. We can develop newer tests as demand grows provided the mapping for those diseases have been completed.

Polycystic Kidney Disease, Niemann-Pick Type A, Huntington's Disease, Hemophilia A (Factor VIII), Gaucher Disease, Fragile X Syndrome, Fanconi Anemia Group C, Factor V Leiden, Cystic Fibrosis, Canavan Disease, Bloom Syndrome, Sickle Cell Anemia, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Tay-Sachs Disease, Y Chromosome Microdeletion Analysis.

3. Oncology Molecular Diagnostics

These tests give the genetics & biology of cancers. They have an impact on therapy & prognosis.

  1. Molecular Genetics: We are able to offer bcl-2 Analysis, bcr/abl Analysis, T&B Cell Gene Rearrangement

  2. FISH analysis of various cancer tissues. Based on the request we can confirm which probe is hybridized to the tissue or specimen of interest.

  3. RNA Expression Studies of the Cancer tissue. This technique evaluates the RNA expression of the tissue of interest using the microarray techniques. It evaluates over 10,000 genes for qualitative & quantative analysis of their RNA expression. In addition it studies the expression pattern over a time period like pre therapy & post therapy.
