LGNA is the first analytical laboratory for medical biology to specialise in human genetics. It was created by a university hospital team with 20 years of experience in the molecular diagnosis of genetic disorders. This experience, combined with the scientific and medical skills of our biologists, gives us a comprehensive overview of issues relating to the diagnosis of genetic disorders. LGNA is also the first French diagnostics laboratory to be automated and computer controlled., It is situated within the Institut Génétique Nantes Atlantique (IGNA), in the heart of the future City of Biotechnology of Nantes. LGNA has designed and developed a range of technical systems combining powerful equipment such as automatic DNA extraction systems, PCR systems, sequencing systems, DHPLC, punchers and the like.
The objective of LGNA, the DNA analytical laboratory, is to assist medical practitioners in their diagnoses of genetic disorders (such as haemochromatosis, cystic fibrosis, thrombophilia, male infertility, sickle cell anemia, or beta-thalassaemia). Moreover, because of a successful R and D division, which has concentrated its activities on genetic ophthalmology, a range of diagnoses of major genetic disorders are now available, including Glaucoma and Retinitis Pigmentosa.
- Continuous technological monitoring
- a a dedicated team, headed by a scientific committee
- international collaborations (Europe and North America) with world-famous laboratories
- ongoing optimisation of our protocols and procedures
- the development of new diagnostics applications.
Our Research and Development team has developed diagnostic tests for genetic disorders based on an original sampling method, using saliva cells instead of blood samples.
