The molecular genetic section, with the help of the world's modern facilities, is capable of examining any genetic disease. The successful experience of past years has been indicative of diagnosis genetic defects in many families in this center that has resulted in pre-natal diagnosis and having a healthy child in these families.
The cytogenetic section of the lab with several years of successful experience of chromosomal examination in hundreds of applicant families, is able to provide chromosomal examination services to families with a suspected child with chromosomal defects or to suspected Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities by amniocentesis sampling or CVS.
Novin Genetic laboratory by using NGS devices, as the first and only center with this technology in the north of the country, and using the best bioinformatics software for analyzing genetic data in patients under study, are ready to provide NIPT or Cell Free DNA test, as well as Whole Exome Sequencing.
Novin Genetic laboratory with more than 10 years of successful activity in the specialized services in the field of genetic and prenatal diagnosis (PND), serving as the first international certificated center for international laboratory laboratories, ISO 15189, in the north of the country, serves the clients.
This center has the following independent sections:
- Genetic counseling section by a specialist
- Molecular section and NGS
- Cytogenetic and molecular cytogenetic section
- The fetal sampling section
- NIPT section or Fetal free DNA in maternal blood
The services offered in this laboratory are included of all kinds of genetic and hereditary diseases in humans.
In counseling section, counseling services for families before marriage, or relativs marriage, infertility, recurrent abortions, children with genetic defects and various other reasons are presented.
In the molecular section, any inherited disease, including mental retardation, hereditary hearing loss / hearing impairment, blindness / low vision or various hereditary diseases of the eye, dystrophies or muscular disorders, hereditary neurological and neuromuscular diseases, various types of hereditary blood diseases, hereditary skin diseases, metabolic, short stature, infertility diseases, etc., are being studied using the world modern equipment such as NGS and can provide pre-natal diagnosis (PND) for these diseases in this center.
In the cytogenetic section, a variety of investigations are conducted on chromosomal aberrations in suspected cases, as well as examination of fetal samples with amniocentesis or chromosomal examination of Chorionic Villus Sample (CVS) on a daily basis. This center also has advanced tools for FISH or Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization.
