The goal of the Sequencing Lab is supporting the research by increasing the scientific production. The proximity with the clinical diagnosis strongly implies the Lab in the genetic analysis techniques needed for the diagnosis of genetic diseases, developing in this way an example of translational research.
With the aim of achieving its objectives and supporting the research teams, the DNA Sequencing Lab has technicians and advance equipments for sequencing (Sanger method), genotyping of DNA markers and different molecular biology techniques.
Annual tests of quality control and results homologation guarantee the quality of sequencing and genotyping. It follows internal, national and international (EMQN) tests.
The available equipments are calibrated to detect more than 30 polimorphisms in a single sample, using a maximum of 5 fluorescences at the same time, and making possible the detection of different allelic sizes in the same sample, because of the electrophoretic migration.
