Genetics & Pharmacogenomics

Since the completion of the Genome project there is more understanding regarding the molecular basis of genetic diseases and how to test for them.
Genetic Screening tests for heredity diseases are routinely offered for pregnant couples in Israel since the early 90's. New tests for new diseases are added every year.
Gamidor Diagnostics is a leading supplier of Genetic Screening tests based on our novel NanoChip® Automated Microarray technology. Today, more then 90% of the genetic screening tests for diseases like CF, Tay Sachs, Ashkenazi Panel, Connexin and more are done using the NanoChip® platform. There are also possibilities for manual methods that can use the Pronto kits.
Pharmacogenetic tests are related to the individual’s response to a specific drug based on their specific genotype in specific genes. Toady, using personalized medicine, physicians can match a specific drug to a specific patient based on his genotype in such a way that the drug will be most efficiently react and metabolize.
The NanoChip platform offers a wide panel of Pharmacogenetic tests such as the P450 2D6, 2C19, 2C9/VKORC1 and more, suitable for a wide panel of drugs.
