Molecular Biology

“Molecular biology is the branch of biology that deals with the interactions between the various systems of a cell, between different types of DNA, RNA and protein biosynthesis.”

Equipment Used

Real-Time PCR (RTPCR) – Cobas Taqman 48 – a completely automated, which enables both detection and quantification of the samples during the early phases of the reaction

Typical Molecular Biology Profiles

  • Viral load in clinical specimens (HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C)
  • Gene expression assays,
  • TB PCR
  • Pharmacogenomics,
  • Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA)
  • Bacterial Identification assays,
  • DNA quantification and Genotyping
