Reliable Genetic Analyses with Advanced Technologies
Novogenia’s DNA laboratory is one of the most modern and automated human genetic laboratories in Europe. The extraction of DNA is fully automated with one of five extraction robots. For the analysis of the samples, we rely on Fluorescent Probe Hybridisation SNP Genotyping.
The mixing of the DNA with the correct reagents is computer-aided using an advanced microfluidics procedure. On each analysis plate, 9,000 gene analyses are performed in six nanolitre reaction volumes each.
In addition, we can analyze DNA fragments in our laboratory using agarose gel, quantitative PCR, and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). For the analysis of blood and urine samples, we use gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC/MS) or tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS).
