Laboratory of molecular diagnostic

DNA craftsmen since 1998

The Laboratory of molecular diagnostic (LDM) is a company authorized and specialized by the competent Authority in the application of molecular biology to diagnosis of genetic diseases, in the detection of microorganisms DNA/RNA and in the forensic genetic analyses.

Our analyses

Genetic tests

Genetic tests allow to highlight human DNA mutations or polymorphisms which are either responsible of the arise of genetic diseases or correlated to the increased risk of developing pathologies.

Microbiological analyses

Microbiological analyses aim to the detection of DNA/RNA of microorganisms either in case of lack of reliability with classical analyses (culturing, serological or microbiological types) or in case they request a too lonf time for results.

Paternity test

The DNA analysis to verify paternity is a method, which is nowadays worldwide recognized by the legal medicine society. The analysis, also called DNA fingerprint, is based on the length of a series of DNA fragments. These fragments have a repetitive sequence (STR, short tandem repeat): an out-and-out genetic and individual identity card.
