Genetic Diagnostic Center in Ahmedabad

Home>Genetic Diagnostic Center in Ahmedabad

Technology has gifted diagnostic science the ultra modern equipments, techniques, and specific tests to diagnose genetic disorder. The genetic tests include examining chromosomes or DNA that are gene making tiny proteins. We, at Sunflower Laboratory offer the biochemical genetic testing. It is available here with blood test analyzing your blood samples. Blood tests is suggested to identify the enzymes that may be abnormal. As being the leading Genetic Diagnostic Center in Ahmedabad, Sunflower Laboratory provides genetic testing for pregnant women, newborns and children of all ages. In several cases, the diagnosis is suggested due to certain symptoms in individual. The team of genetic counselors at Sunflower Laboratory examines the family history and medical history of individual before performing test. The geneticist also examine pregnancy history before performing test for genetic diagnosis.

  • Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT)
  • Genetic testing (by Karyotyping, Microarray, FISH methods)
  • Pre-implantation Genetic Screening/Determination (PGS/PGD)

Here are some categories of genetic tests

Newborn screening:

It is prescribed to check several genetic disorders that can be diagnosed and treated early in life.

Prenatal diagnosis:

This test is performed to diagnose a genetic disease or condition in the developing fetus. Prenatal tests include

  • Screening Blood
  • Amniocentesis
  • Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS)
  • Percutaneous Umbilical Blood Sampling (PUBS)

Predictive genetic testing

The test is designed to know the chances for development of certain disease in individual with or without the family history of such disease. e.g. heart disease and cancer.  

Presymptomatic Genetic testing:

This method of genetic testing in Ahmedabad is performed for a person with a family history for a genetic disease without distinctive symptoms. The test is suggested to individual to check genetic alteration associated with the disease.

Carrier testing:

Carrier testing is refereed for the suspected "autosomal recessive" disease. An "autosomal recessive" disease is a disease that will appear only if individual inherited two copies of the altered gene.

This test is suggest to check if a person carries one copy of a gene linked to a suspected disease because in couples, if both carry the same autosomal recessive gene have 25 percent chance with each pregnancy to have a child with particular disease.
