Laboratory of Molecular Biology

The Laboratory of Molecular Biology of the ANASSA Clinic is a model, fully equipped and organized laboratory that diagnostically supports almost all clinical specialties.

From the onset of 21st century, the Molecular Biology acts synergistically and supportively with the clinician in order to provide better, targeted and personalized diagnosis. It is an integral diagnostic branch in Medical Structures with a wide range of clinical departments. Molecular diagnosis using Molecular Biology techniques is performed using state-of-the-art equipment and specialized personnel. From the receipt of the biological sample until its final analysis, strict protocols concerning its management and analysis are followed.

The use of synchronous molecular biology techniques, which are characterized by exceptional sensitivity and specificity, has been an essential component of the diagnostic analytical methods in recent years, as it offers an immediate and reliable tool that allow the clinician to answer important clinical questions. Nowadays, Molecular Diagnosis can be divided into two major categories, Molecular Diagnosis of Pathogens and Molecular Genetic Diagnosis.

“…Service for better, targeted and personalized diagnosis ”

The Molecular Biology laboratory offers services for:

  • detecting infection and monitoring it
  • the standardization of the disease either has a genetic basis or stems from an infection,
  • the detection and valid prevention of inherited diseases
  • Prenatal testing (detection of male or female infertility)
  • the identification of exact genetic damage and / or its association with the disease
  • the ability to highlight individualized therapy (Pharmacogenomics)
  • the identification of paternity or kinship

Molecular Diagnosis of Pathogens refers as the specific detection of microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites in a wide range of biological materials. In addition to detection, Molecular Diagnosis allows the determination of the specific type of human pathogens (influenza virus, human papilloma virus), offering enhanced diagnostic information of clinical importance, minimizing time that is required.

Molecular Genetic Diagnosis allows the identification of gene mutations that are responsible for the onset, the development of disease and the appropriate pharmaceutical intervention. Additionally, the determination of kinship relations (e.g. determination of paternity or kinship) is also achieved. Information regarding the pathogenesis, development and progression of genetic diseases and the relationship cannot be given using any alternative technology or diagnostic approach. Molecular Genetic Diagnosis allows not only the diagnosis of symptomatic patients of a disease, but also the pre-symptomatic / asymptomatic diagnosis of carriers of genetic defects and often the prevention of the disease in relatives. It allows the assessment of a person’s genetic predisposition to diseases with a multifactorial nature, such as different types of cancer, thrombophilia, cystic fibrosis and autoimmune diseases. It also offers the ability to detect and prevent high-risk pregnancies.
