WORLD GENETICS

World Genetics is a CAP and CLIA-Certified Laboratory Located in Los Angeles specialized in molecular biology, under the leadership of our Laboratory Director Daniel Chen, MD PhD, World Genetics uses state of the art technology such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), which is the most advance technology there is for sequencing, and Real Time PCR for COVID-19 diagnostics, we are committed to help you preserve health and improve the quality of life

Because we are a small lab we can customize our panels to fit your specific needs.

One thing that distinguishes us from other labs is our personalized service, we offer medical consultation for interpretation and/or discussion of results.

Our goal is to give our clients a report with the most highly accurate diagnosis and also help in the understanding of results

Tests

Carrier screening (fragile X, SMA, CF (whole gene sequence)

Carrier screening is a type of test that can tell whether you carry a change in a gene for certain genetic disorders.

Comprehensive carrier screening

A comprehensive Genetic test that can tell you whether you carry a gene for certain genetic disorders.

NIPT

Is a Non-invasive prenatal screening test for certain genetic conditions. Such genetic conditions include: Down Syndrome (trisomy 21), Edwards Syndrome (trisomy 18), Patau Syndrome (trisomy 13) and Microdeletion Syndromes (e.g. Angelman and Prader-Willi syndromes)

Tests

Short tandem repeat genotyping

Short Tandem Repeats (STRs) are efficient tools for mapping specific traits or to follow the flow of genetic material in a population.

Customed MLPA analysis

Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) is a variation of the multiplex polymerase chain reaction that permits amplification of multiple targets with only a single primer pair.
