The Sequencing Laboratory of the IdiPAZ Health Research Institute of the La Paz University Hospital was established with the commitment to support the many research groups affiliated with the Institute. Based on this objective, the Sequencing Laboratory of IdiPAZ supports
the lines of research of the various groups in the Institute.
The laboratory currently has the necessary facilities to process and analyse DNA sequences and fragments, which helps detect detailed molecular alterations or those with few base pairs, and loss of heterozygosity studies by STS analysis (sequence-tagged sites), STRs (Short Tandem Repeat) and SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphism).
To detect large molecular alterations, or as a probing method, the laboratory has the technology for studies using MLPA (multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification), MSI (microsatellite instability, widely used for the diagnosis of hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer); and QF-PCR, which detects the most common numerical chromosomal disorders and aneuploidies in humans using foetal DNA.
The laboratory personnel have extensive experience and training in this field, which results in continuous communication between users and the laboratory, resulting in repeated cycles of training for the analysis of processed samples and understanding of results. In addition, we are
convinced that laboratory use of computer applications for analysis facilitates and speeds the delivery of results.
Along these lines, users who require them are instructed in the use of various applications.
