MOLECULAR LABORATORY

20210602_111806.jpg
  1. The laboratory provides nucleic acid based diagnostics, performing molecular diagnostics helps physicians to treat with greater precision as the tests are very accurate.

  2. Once the samples are collected and received in the laboratory are prepared appropriately prior to nucleic acid (DNA/RNA) extraction.

  3. Once the nucleic acid is extracted it's prepared for amplification on a real-time PCR platform. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplifies nucleic acid to a detectale amount.

  4. Our molecular laboratory utilizes a 5-plex real-time PCR machine known as Rotor-Gene Q.

  5. Results are analysed on a computer enabled software before reporting.
