Genetic Analyses

Molecular Diagnostics

The molecular diagnostic service  - established in 1996 - is primarily provided to Region Midt (Central Region Denmark), other regions, and for some analyses on a national basis. We also accept requests from outside 

Gene panels

We offer different gene panels to support diagnosis in hereditary disease like in different cancer types, sudden cardiac death and cardiac disease, endocrine and metabolic disease.

Internationally Accredited Quality

The department is accredited by DANAK/ILAC by the international laboratory standard DS/EN ISO 15189:2008 for medical examination - genetics.

The laboratory is accredited for a flexible scope regarding systems, components and, performance of the method.
The laboratoy has demonstrated relevance and reliability of the accredited examinations.

All genetic analyses, except for exome sequencing and sequencing of tissue materials, are accredited. A complete method list can be found at DANAK's website.

MOMA participates in the external quality assessment programme of EMQN (European Molecular Genetics Quality Networks) for sequencing and schemes for single analyses as HNPCC.
Our laboratory has since 2002 ranked among the top-20% laboratories in the EMQN program.


How to order a genetic test

Tests available to clinicians only

Genetic tests offered by MOMA can only be ordered by clinicians at clinical departments, including clinical genetic departments.

We report results exclusively to the referring clinician. Genetic tests should always be accompanied by genetic counselling.
