Department of Molecular Examinations

The department of Molecular examinations is located on the fifth floor of the privately owned facilities of A. EVANGELOU CLINICAL LABORATORY, in the central laboratory, and it is a separate department specialising in molecular examinations.

It is comprised of well-trained molecular biologists with many years of experience and postgraduate and doctoral degrees.

The purpose of the molecular department is to offer a wide range of specialised tests to assist in the investigation of clinical cases in relation to prediction, diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of examinees with genetic diseases, respiratory and urogenital tract infections, or other pathogenic conditions.

The Molecular department is supported by brand new state-of-the-art automated machines.
