Molecular Investigations

Μοριακός Έλεγχος

Molecular diagnosis is a modern imperative tool that enhances our understanding of the function of our body at molecular level, assists in distinguishing underlying causes for fertility and reproductive disorders, identifies and prevents hereditary genetic disorders and syndromes, but also importantly, finalizes with high sensitivity and specificity the diagnosis of genetic diseases.
