Asper Ophthalmics

Asper Ophthalmics is a comprehensive collection of genetic tests targeted at the diagnostics of a wide variety of hereditary ocular disorders, including retinal disorders, corneal dystrophies, and age related ophthalmic conditions.

Our genetic tests assist clinicians in confirming diagnoses and informing patients about their risks for inherited eye diseases.

Different technological solutions are in use including massive parallel sequencing, single gene (Sanger) sequencing, microarray-based testing, RFLP analysis.

Up-do-date next generation sequencing technology helps us to create customized version of the test to meet fully your needs. However, our robust APEX-based approach enables fast, simultaneous and cost-effective detection of hundreds of disease related mutations and alterations in multiple genes.
