Molecular pathological Diagnostics
As part of the Network Genomic Medicine this diagnostics is provided to patients and cooperation partners regardless of residence or therapeutic location. By means of an integrated care contract reimbursement is guaranteed beyond the regular budget of treatment in a hospital or as an outpatient. The participation of an attending physician and the patient in the integrated care is a prerequisite for this. Ince 2012, as the first group in Europe, we have offered a comprehensive analysis with a multiplex test in combination with highly sensitive deep sequencing which also detects rare gene mutations in the smallest tissue samples reliably. For that, multiple techniques are used on routinely formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded samples, such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), immunohistochemical detection of gene expression and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).
