Biopsy DNA profiling
Diagnosis of pathology using tissue collected by biopsy usually leads to big changes in a patient’s way of life, including surgery and/or long-term treatment regimens and medications. Before embarking on this new and demanding reality, every patient must be sure that the diagnosis is truly about him/her, not the result of human error, for example caused by a mix-up in the lab. Unfortunately, such mistakes have often occurred; as a result, both the patient is affected, who is diagnosed with a condition that he/she does not have, and the patient that receives a favourable diagnosis thus losing valuable time in treating his/her condition.
Avoiding such unpleasant situations is nowadays a simple task, requiring a simple DNA analysis of a small portion of the biopsy tissue used in the diagnosis. By comparing the genetic profile of the tissue with the genetic profile of the individual (buccal swab), one can be certain of one’s next steps.
