Patológika Molecular

In the last decade scientits have managed to characterize a large number of biomarkers allowing the discovery of new therapeutic targets. The development of molecular diagnostic methods, more sensitive and specific, allow the application of individualized treatments. This is a great opportunity to enclose the progression of cancer processes and has a direct impact on the health of our patients. 

 

Patológika Laboratory provides to the clinical and scientific community a pioneering service in molecular techniques applied to diagnosis. 

 

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY TECHNIQUES:

We perform conventional PCR and Real-Time PCR to detect mutations in genes with therapeutic interest in solid tumors (biomarkers). Conventional PCR and Low Density Micro-array Hybridization to characterize pathogenic viruses. 

We also perform paternity and maternity tests and human genetic identification tests (DNA Fingerprinting) in collaboration with Genomica S.A.U. (ENAC accreditation).

 

CYTOGENETIC TECHNIQUES:

Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) for detection of gene amplifications and translocations in solid and liquid tumors. Also in cytologies.
