Analyzers, Laboratory, Molecular Assay, Genetic Testing

Definition : Molecular assay laboratory analyzers designed to identify mutations within a gene or chromosome alterations. These analyzers typically perform some or all of the processes of separation, hybridization genetic diseases (e.g., liquid or solid phase), replication (e.g., polymerase chain reaction), and detection; they use a fragment of nucleic acid labeled with one of a variety of reporter groups (i.e., a nucleic acid probe) and appropriate reagents. Genetic analyzers are used in the diagnosis of inherited genetic diseases (e.g., cystic fibrosis, hemophilia) or acquired genetic diseases (e.g., neoplasm) and chromosomal disorders (e.g., Down syndrome) and for detection of single nucleotide polymorphisms; some are also used for human leukocyte antigen typing to test histocompatibility before transplants and for forensic and paternity analysis.
