Burc Genetic Diagnostic Center

BURC Genetic Diagnostic Center was founded in 1998 and has been dedicated to providing high quality comprehensive diagnostic services for over 10 years. Our central laboratory in Merter has 1500 m² field of use with over 110 employees. Both national and international requests related with routine to rare genetic diseases have been accepted and studied according to best practice guidelines in genetics. By building on our laboratory’s strengths in research and discovery, we aim to provide qualified genetic testing services relevant to twenty-first century medicine. With this technological infrastructure our patients and physicians get the great advantage of requesting multiple analyses in molecular cytogenetics, molecular genetics, conventional cytogenetics, and molecular microbiology in the same biological material such as amniotic fluid, CVS and peripheral blood. In other words, by using the same amniotic fluid the opportunity for requesting karyotyping, FISH testing, as well as single gene disorders such as achondroplasia, CF and also toxoplasma or CMV DNA testing are being presented to our clinicians.
