Genetic Testing


The diagnostic unit of the Institute of Medical Molecular Genetics is approved for clinical genetic testing by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and is accredited since January 10th 2020 according to ISO17025:2017. We offer genetic testing for monogenic (Mendelian), familial diseases.

Since 2006, our institute has established polar body diagnostics and preimplantation genetic diagnosis since 2017 and offers it for monogenic diseases.

Genetic testing requires informed consent. Please complete the respective consent form for genetic testing of the Swiss Society of Medical Genetics and send it together with the blood, tissue or DNA sample. The consent form is available in French and English language (SSMG).

We appreciate your feedback.
