Molecular infectivity means a serie of molecular diagnostic techniques (PCR and quantitative PCR) through which it is possible to investigate the presence of genome of pathogenic microorganisms in a much faster, sensitive and reliable way than the current immunoenzymatic techniques. It also provides the typing of the viral or bacterial strain, if necessary, through advanced molecular biology methods. With molecular diagnosis it is possible to have a clear increase the specificity, and especially, the sensitivity of the diagnosis of pathologies associated with pathogenic microorganisms.

Through these advanced methods it is possible to follow the course of the disease and the effects of the pharmacological treatment.

Genechron proposes the analysis of the following microorganisms:

  • Chlamydia Trachomatis
  • Cytomegalovirus (CMV),
  • Epstein Barr Virus (EBV
  • Hepatitis B Quantitative / Qualitative Virus (HBV)
  • Hepatitis C Quantitative / Qualitative Virus (HCV)
  • Hepatitis C Quantitative / Qualitative Virus (HCV)
  • Gardnerella Vaginalis
  • Micobacterium Tubercolosis
  • Mycoplasma Hominis
  • Mycoplasma Genitalis
  • Neisseria Gonorrhoeae
  • Papilloma screening (HPV)
  • Papilloma typing (HPV)
  • Rosolia (Rubeovirus)
  • Toxoplasma Gondii
  • Trichomonas Vaginalis
  • Ureaplasma Urealyticum
  • Varicella Zooster Virus (VZV)
