Analysis Laboratory

Please find below the complete list of the exams carried out at our center.

Chemical-clinical exams
It is a branch of Laboratory medicine that deals with the study of biochemical alterations caused by diseases, and the application of analytical chemical-instrumental and immunochemical techniques to perform diagnostic or routine exams on biological fluids.

Immunohematology
mmunohematology treats blood diseases related to the alterations of the immune system, when the body reacts against its own tissues and/or organs.

Bacteriology
Medical bacteriology is a branch of Microbiology that studies bacteria in connection with diseases that can derive from them.

Hormonal Assays
The hormonal assays allow to measure the amount of hormones in the blood, in order to determine if the glands that produce them (pituitary, thyroid, etc.) work properly, thus identifying any possible hormonal imbalance.

Prist and Rast tests for food intolerances
They are specific blood tests to highlight an allergy and to identify the specific substance which you are allergic to. Our medical center is equipped to run the Faber 244 test, which also provides an alternative diet to food intolerances to specific molecules.

Tumor Markers
These substances can be found in blood, urine or in cellular tissues, and show a significant increase in their concentration in some types of neoplasia. Therefore, a high level of tumor markers may be a signal of a developing cancer, even if there may be other causes for the raising of their values.

Cytological Exams
A cytological exam is the observation of cells under an optical microscope, taken or exfoliated from the different organs or tissues of our organism.
These cells must be carefully “fixed” as soon as they are collected, then colored in the laboratory, in order to make them visible under the microscope.

Infection-related analysis
These analysis aim at identifying the presence or absence of viral forms in the organism, or to monitor the effectiveness of a therapy by finding various antibodies.

Tropical medicine exams
It is a branch of medicine that deals with the identification of particular viral or parasitological forms. It also deals with personalized vaccination and checkups based on travel needs.

Immuno-compatibility
The HLA system consists of a set of blood-group and tissue antigens, encoded by a series of genes located on the short arm of chromosome 6. Experimental observation shows that these antigens are responsible for a series of humoral and cellular reactions that lead to transplant rejection, hence their identification as “histocompatibility” antigens..

Occupational medicine
It is a medical branch specialized in the prevention of work-related risks.

Couple’s infertility examinations
It includes all diagnostic tests in order to find out the reasons why the couple fails to conceive a child. Therefore, she will take: laboratory tests, genetic tests, vaginal swabs, pap tests, gynaecological examinations, ultrasounds and mammograms.
He will take: semen analysis, sperm separation test, DNA fragmentation test, microbiology and virology tests on seminal fluid, genetic tests, hormonal tests, andrological examinations, urological examinations, genetic counseling for couple’s infertility, medically-assisted fertilization techniques.


Molecular Biology and Molecular Genetics

It is a branch of biology that deals with the molecular mechanisms underlying life. DNA can be amplified thanks to sophisticated techniques, in order to find out genetic mutations that cause a lack of functionality of that very investigated gene. This technique allows to diagnose many genetic diseases, paternity tests, prenatal diagnosis tests, molecular oncology, pharmacogenetics, female infertility, cardiovascular disease, male infertility, nutrigenetics, molecular infection studies, cytogenetic examinations.

Molecular oncology
It deals with the application of molecular techniques to diagnose cancer. Molecular diagnosis of neoplasms by DNA analysis is taken on biological samples such as urine, faeces, sputum, vaginal swab, and blood samples.

Nutrigenetics
It is a new discipline that brings together the long-established knowledge on nutrition, physiology, biochemistry, with new discoveries in the field of genetics and molecular biology. Nutrigenetics allows to develop a customized nutrition based on the genetic constitution of the individual.

Pharmacogenetics
It is a fairly new and rapidly evolving discipline that sets its starting point in the study of individual differences in the response to drugs. Depending on your genetic makeup, each person will have a certain reaction, resulting from the intake of a given medicine.

Paternity investigations
It is aimed at verifying paternity by comparing DNA. This test can be important in consideration of the rights and duties of the father.

Cardiovascular diseases
Cardiovascular diseases are a group of illnesses affecting the heart and/or blood vessels, and represent one of the main causes of death in industrialized countries.

Molecular infectiology
Molecular infectiology is the branch that deals with the molecular diagnosis of viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections by gene amplification (PCR).
