Asper Dermatology is a collection of genetic tests targeting the diagnostics of different skin and skin related disorders. The portfolio includes tests for diseases causing tumor formation, pigmentation abnormalities and skin problems. Several tests supporting the differential diagnosis of disease groups with heterogeneous phenotypes have also been added into the portfolio.
Next generation sequencing enables us to detect wide variety of mutations in multiple genes. This approach helps clinicians in confirming the diagnosis, providing patients and their families with information on inheritance and implications of the disorder.
