Elango Genetics is a specialized infectious disease molecular diagnostics laboratory focused on most of the prevalent infectious diseases. We have range of tests covering most of the microbial diseases. We believe in excellence at all levels of performance. Stringent quality control parameters are set right from pre-analytical stages till reporting, ensuring accurate & precise results.
Genetic testing can help estimate your chance of developing cancer in your lifetime. It does this by searching for specific changes in your genes, chromosomes, or proteins. These changes are called mutations. Genetic tests are available for breast, ovarian, colon, thyroid, and some other cancers. Genetic testing may help:
Genetic tests are done by analyzing small samples of blood or body tissues. They determine whether you, your partner, or your baby carry genes for certain inherited disorders. Genetic testing has developed enough so that doctors can often pinpoint missing or defective genes. The type of genetic test needed to make a specific diagnosis depends on the particular illness that a doctor suspects. Many different types of body fluids and tissues (blood, skin, bone, saliva or other tissue) can be used in genetic testing.
Predictive genetic testing aids in identifying the genetic markers that are linked to disease. These tests are done before you show any signs of a disease. These tests represent a new and growing class of medical tests, differing in fundamental ways from conventional medical diagnostic tests. The hope underlying such testing is that early identification of individuals at risk of a specific condition will lead to reduced morbidity and mortality through targeted screening, surveillance, and prevention.
