Our team can stay in your area for a time to be determined and make vacations with your doctors to offer their patients the knowledge, advice, appropriate treatments against pain of all origins
During our stays at home, we can inform doctors on predictive search possibilities for cancers or particular sensibilities.
When aiming to confirm the diagnosis of a disorder known to be associated with a single locus or gene, Sanger sequencing still constitutes the method of choice. However, in presence of disorders with overlapping phenotypes or non-specific symptoms that render the selection of a particular gene very difficult, NGS is particularly recommended. This is also the case for genetically heterogeneous disorders where a single phenotype is associated with variants in many different genes.
NGS is very useful for:
- Confirming a clinical diagnosis in case of the potential involvement of many genes
- Guiding proper therapeutic intervention
- Allowing cascade screening in relatives: Once the familial mutation is identified, DNA from blood relatives can be tested for the specific mutation without sequencing the entire gene.
- Allowing the rapid detection of novel mutations in minor genes which are often not screened as a priority by direct Sanger sequencing
While bioinformatics enables the processing of large sequencing data, the proper clinical validation of any result still relies on the expertise of trained specialists. SwissCheckUp partners with worldwide experts in their respective fields to offer you the best of NGS technology so that you can rely on the reports we issue.
