  • MOLECULAR BIOLOGY

    Molecular biology is the study of biology at a molecular level. It concerns the composition, structure and interactions of cellular molecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins that carry out the biological processes essential for the cellular functions and maintenance.

  • PATERNITY TEST

    Paternity test is a test to determine whether a given man could be the biological father of a given child. Among the current methods, DNA fingerprinting/ DNA profiling is the most advanced and accurate technology to determine paternity.
    Every individual receives DNA from two parents, one set of chromosomes from father and one set from mother. Each chromosome contains specific markers that are different among individuals. By comparing those DNA fingerprints or profile, father-child relationship can be determined.
    This technology are also used in maternity (mother-child relationship) and other kinship test.

  • NUCLEIC ACID TEST

    A nucleic acid test, often called a "NAT", (or nucleic acid amplification test / "NAAT") is a molecular technique used to detect a virus or a bacterium. These tests were developed to shorten the window period, a time between when a patient has been infected and when they show up as positive by antibody tests.

  • GENETIC TEST

    Genetic testing is a test that detects mutations in chromosomes or genes. The results help determine a person’s chance of developing or passing on a genetic disorder, and choose suitable treatments. Currently, more advanced sequencing technology such as next-generation sequencing is used to shorten the time and lower the cost of such test.
