Molecular


Molecular Diagnostics is a branch of laboratory medicine or clinical pathology that utilizes molecular biology to help diagnose disease and select patient treatment options. We provide a preemptive health screen for patients that can help identify how their genetics can influence their risk for specific diseases and syndromes.

DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE TESTING

What if we could diagnose Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease before symptoms started? The hope is, future treatments could then target the disease in its earliest stages, before irreversible brain damage or mental decline has occurred. With our 20 gene panel, we can test your DNA to determine your risk for Alzheimer’s or Dementia later in life.

Gene Panel:

  • CHCHD10
  • DCTN1
  • FUS
  • CHMP2B
  • HNRNPA2B1
  • PSEN1
  • PLAU
  • GRN
  • MAPT
  • TARDBP
  • PSEN2
  • SQSTM1
  • APP
  • HFE
  • TBK1
  • UBQLN2
  • VCP
  • SMPD1
  • GBA
  • SNCB

CARDIOVASCULAR TESTING

Our Cardiac panel focuses on patients with a family history of high cholesterol and heart disease. One third of all adults in the United States will develop some form of heart condition during their lifetime. Many of these conditions occur due to a combination of risk factors, some of which are hereditary. Using genetic testing physicians are able to better understand a patients risks, confirm a diagnosis, and create an appropriate medical management plan.
