Our aim is to bring in high quality genetic testing in a phased manner

Our aim is to bring in high quality genetic testing in a phased manner Sun Oct, 08 PerkinElmer Genetics, Inc., which provides a global genomic lab testing platform, will accelerate its high quality and affordable genomic services in India. This platform will complement newborn screening tests for genetic disorders and help address complex and rare inherited diseases. Dr. Madhuri Hegde, VP and Chief Scientific Officer for laboratory services of PerkinElmer’s Diagnostics business group, reveals more in an interaction Read More: https://www.expressbpd.com/healthcare/market/our-aim-is-to-bring-in-high-quality-genetic-testing-in-a-phased-manner/391741/ How is genome testing evolving in India? Genome testing has evolved significantly in the last two decades. Since early 1990s many of the hospitals in India had only cytogenetic labs. Even five years ago, labs in India only focused on certain diseases like thalassemia and Down syndrome. Now with more advanced technology, we are able to look at the entire genome at a reduced cost. There is a misconception

PerkinElmer Hosts Medical Genomics Seminars in India

PerkinElmer Hosts Medical Genomics Seminars in India Thu Aug, 31 | New Delhi, Delhi, India PerkinElmer Health Sciences Pvt Ltd (PEHS), a screening and diagnostic laboratory of PerkinElmer, Inc. today announced that it has kicked off a series of seminars for neurologists, paediatricians and gynaecologists in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Mangalore, India.
