Nowadays human genetic laboratory diagnostics is driven by three forces: money , quality and quick adaptation of high throughput approaches. In other words, clinical laboratory geneticists (CLG) have to deliver quick, reliable and for low costs, a most comprehensive result for individual patients. In principal this is a positive development, as more and more genetic test results are extremely meaningful for diagnoses and therapy of constitutional and acquired diseases (e.g. ). At the same time… 

Importance of Databases for Human Genetic Diagnostics

The identification of a genetic aberration and its exact characterization is not enough and it is duty of a diagnostic laboratory also to provide in the report information on previously reported comparable cases.

From Human Cytogenetics to Human Chromosomics

The growing insights into human chromosome structure finally lead to a “chromosomic view” of the three-dimensional constitution and plasticity of genes in interphase nuclei, and reconsiderations of the role of the chromosome and the single cell in Human Genetic research are urgently necessary.

Regarding the rights and duties of Clinical Laboratory Geneticists in genetic healthcare systems; results of a survey in over 50 countries

The first study on the rights and duties of CLGs is presented and the results of a survey performed in 35 European and 18 non-European countries with 100 participating specialists are presented.

European registration process for Clinical Laboratory Geneticists in genetic healthcare

Besides MDs and genetic counselors/nurses an EU-wide recognition system for Clinical Laboratory Geneticist has been established, which strengthens the status of specialists working in human genetic diagnostics in Europe and worldwide.

Noninvasive Prenatal Testing - When Is It Advantageous to Apply

NIPT is a fascinating possibility to gain information on unborn life from minimal amounts of DNA, however, it remains a pure risk estimation test directed towards the detection of specific chromosomal abnormalities from peripheral blood of the pregnant woman.

Next-generation sequencing for endocrine cancers: Recent advances and challenges

This review focuses on recent discoveries in the use of next-generation sequencing methods for clinical diagnosis of endocrine tumors in patients and concludes with a discussion on persisting challenges and future objectives.

Comprehensive chronic lymphocytic leukemia diagnostics by combined multiplex ligation dependent probe amplification (MLPA) and interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization (iFISH)

Both MLPA and routine iFISH have comparable detection rates for aberrations being typically present in CLL and both were superior to MLPA in samples with low tumor cell load, and thus a cost-efficient scheme for routine diagnostics is proposed.

Effectiveness of whole-exome sequencing and costs of the traditional diagnostic trajectory in children with intellectual disability

The increased causal variant detection yield by WES and the relatively high costs of the entire traditional diagnostic trajectory suggest that early implementation of WES is a relevant and cost-efficient option in patient diagnostics.

Markers for the identification of late breast cancer recurrence

Further research is needed to select individual biomarkers or multi-gene signatures that offer identification of late recurrence specifically and thus justify routine use of these tests in the clinical setting.

Chromosomics

Chromosomics includes research into chromatin-modification-mediated changes in the architecture of chromosomes, which may influence the functions and life-spans of cells, tissues, organs and individuals.

Quality issues and the quality assurance measures that have been devised for multiplex assays ranging from simple two-plex assays to the types of assays that involve simultaneous testing on millions of test sites on a single analytical device are explored.
