Gencardio Diagnostics is the first laboratory in Catalonia dedicated to the diagnosis of hereditary cardiovascular diseases. The laboratory has its origins in the Cardiovascular Genetics Research Group, a group with consolidated clinical and research experience in the field of hereditary heart diseases, leading in the discovery of some of these diseases, such as Brugada syndrome, and in the elaboration of the most important clinical guidelines.
To maintain quality, stay up to date with advances in the field, and provide the best possible service for clients and users, it is essential to be able to manage specialised testing for rare family diseases from a centre that combines diagnosis with research in the same field. The professionals at Gencardio Diagnosticos combine the development of high-performance genetic tools with the accompaniment of the clinical professional both in the triage of the necessary genetic study and in patient counselling and decision making.
Gencardio Diagnostics also collaborates with the Institut Català d'Oncologia (ICO) and the Hospital Universitari Dr. Josep Trueta with a cancer somatic genetics panel, available to the public health system.
