New version of Ashkenazi Jewish diseases microchip

An updated version of the APEX chip includes mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2, and LCA5 genes common in the Ashkenazi Jewish population. The test now detects up to 112 variants in 27 genes providing better screening and diagnostics for people of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry.

DNA Analysis in Russian language

For those of you who are fluent in Russian we have a pleasant news about our animation – it is now also available in Russian. Please visit in order to take a look at the whole process with text in Russian language.

However it must be emphasised that APEX is only one of the technologies we use in screening patient DNAs. Amongst APEX we have also NextGen and Sanger sequencing that can be very well combined.
