Genetic testing

Genetic testing also know as DNA testing, allows the determination of blood lines and the genetic diagnosis of vulnerabilities to inherited diseases. Genetic testing cans be used to determine a child’s parentage ( genetic mother and father ) or in general a person’s ancestry or biological relationship between a person’s ancestry or biological relationship between people.

Biobank

Biobank is a large collection of biological or medical data and tissue samples,amassed for research purpose .


Genetic Counseling

Genetic counseling is the process by which the patients or relatives at risk of an inherited disorder are advised of the consequences and nature of the disorder the probability of developing or transmitting it, and the options open to them in management and family planning.


Forensics

Scientific tests or techniques used in connection with the detection of crime. A laboratory department responsible for tests used in detection of crime.


Genetic ancestry testing

Genetic ancestry testing is a way for people interested in family history to go beyond what they can learn from relatives or from historical documentation


Genetic Research

The role of genetic research is indispensable in the ever challenging fields oh diagnosis and treatment of genetic disorders, infectious diseases and non communicable diseases.


Oocytes Vitrification

The vitrification of oocytes is one of the techniques used in preserving fertility. It allows a woman’s reproductive capacity to be postponed for as long as she wants, with the same possibilities as at the point when the oocytes are vitrified.


Semen cryopreservation

Semen cryopreservation ( commonly called sperm banking) is a procedure to preserve sperm cells. Semen can be used successfully indefinitely after cryopreservation.

Paternity Testing

Paternity testing can determine whether or not a particular man is the biological father of a child. This procedure involves collecting and examining the DNA of a small sample of bodily fluid or tissue from a child and the potential father.

HumGene does every type of relationship test, and our home sample collection kit is easy to use and clinically precise.

We are available to everyone in the country; with DNA Sample collection Lagos. We can courier DNA Test sample collection kits for self DNA sample collection if you are outside Lagos at no extra cost.

At HumGene we offer you a reliable and confidential paternity tests.  We work directly with a Laboratory in Canada which is ISO 17025 accredited and our home and legal paternity tests are performed on 21 genetic markers to ensure the accuracy and reliability of our results. Depending on your case, we offer a comprehensive range of DNA paternity tests to meet your requirements.

How accurate is the test?

Results are typically over 99.99% accurate for inclusion and 100% accurate for exclusion of a potential father.

Understanding DNA

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) stores the genetic information in the cells of your being. It is made up of four similar compounds A.T.C. and G that are repeated over and over in pairs.

A gene is a distinct portion of a cell’s DNA and provides the coded instructions that help structure and determine every aspect of your physical and mental being. These genes are parceled in bundles called chromosomes. There are 23 pairs of chromosomes one of each are from the mother and one from the father. The 23rd chromosome is the sexual determinate. Testing is based on PCR (polymerase chain reaction) and the use of STR (short tandem repeats) to generate multiplex reactions where many STR regions are tested simultaneously. This produces a 100% result excluding the approximate .0000001% incidence of monozygotic genes (identical twins).
