Our molecular genetic laboratory, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and comprehensive human genetic and bioinformatic expertise, deals with the diagnostics of constitutional, i. e. hereditary, as well as somatic genetic changes, especially in tumor cells.
From SNP analysis for established gene variants, through Sanger sequencing or NGS panel analysis of disease genes, to whole-exome analysis of the entire active genome using Illumina NextGen sequencers, we have the entire range of molecular genetic diagnostics at our disposal.
Our strength lies in the patient-oriented clinical implementation of our competencies in the laboratory in close cooperation with the treating physicians and, in genetic counseling, in direct discussions with the patients themselves. We are always approachable and search together with you for solutions to your problems!
The particular focus of our diagnostics on hereditary diseases are:
- Familial tumor dispositions (e. g. hereditary breast and ovarian cancer)
- Hereditary cardiac, vascular and connective tissue diseases (e. g. cardiomyopathies)
- Hereditary disorders of blood coagulation (e. g. Willebrand’s syndrome, Hemophilia A)
