Story of molecular diagnosis
Molecular diagnostics is a diagnostic technique to examine DNA or RNA, which contains genetic information of infectious bacteria or virus to assess the presence or absence of pathogens associated with diseases from human-derived samples such as blood, urine, and stool.
In 2009, worldwide surveillance was conducted due to the outbreak of pandemic H1N1 flu. The PCR method was used as a confirmatory testing at the time. It is an example of molecular diagnostics.
Molecular diagnostic is a diagnostic method that uses genetic materials to detect viral and bacterial infections. It is very effective to make the diagnosis of infectious diseases, because of fast, accurate and customized results. It also guides the best treatment method for patient management, even for complicated diagnosis such as identifying drug resistant or mutant genes.
You can test several pathogens related to a certain diseases at the same time.
Seegene’s patented molecular diagnostic products can analyzes target gene, specific to each pathogen.
When you are infected with virus or bacteria, Seegene’s diagnostic
products not only tell you your infection status, but also provide
the quantitative (titer level) information of the pathogens in three
levels - low, intermediate, high. This additional information is
particularly useful for follow-up management such as forecasting
or monitoring the progress of the disease or treatment.
Seegene's molecular diagnostic products are available in
many hospitals & reference laboratories in worldwide.
Please ask your doctor about how you can get tested.
