Yourgene Laboratory Services Taipei provide high quality genetic testing and bioinformatics solutions across a range of applications.
Yourgene offers a varied portfolio of genetic tests in the field of oncology, reproductive health and cardiology with further tests in the pipeline. The laboratory is located in Taipei, Taiwan and is TAF (Taiwan Accreditation Foundation No: 2738) certified.
BRCA1 and BRCA2 screening
Yourgene Bioscience combines it bioinformatics expertise and Next Generation Sequencing technology to provide a BRCA1 and BRCA2 screening test to detect harmful mutations that are associated with an increased risk of breast, ovarian, prostate and pancreatic cancer.
The study of genetic information from cell-free DNA (cfDNA) may impact future oncology diagnosis and treatment. By enabling a non-invasive and cost-effective alternative to traditional biopsy samples, liquid biopsy may redefine the future of cancer care. The Oncomine® cfDNA assay helps detect somatic variants at low frequency (e.g., 0.1%) in cfDNA from plasma using Ion Torrent™ next-generation sequencing (NGS) system.
The Oncomine® tests have been fully validated by Thermo Fisher.
Yourgene Laboratory Services Taipei have chosen to run the Oncomine® assays in their laboratory. Tests are currently offered for lung cancer, colon cancer and breast cancer.
Cancer Hotspot screening
Cancer Hotspot sceening can detect early signs of cancer or pre-cancerous conditions before any symptoms appear. Certain cancers are preventable, and many cancers are treatable and curable, especially with effective treatment in the early stages.
Hotspot regions, including ~2,800 COSMIC mutation of 50 oncogenes and tumour suppressor genes are targeted, with wide coverage of the KRAS, BRAF, and EGFR genes.
Sage™ prenatal screen
Yourgene Laboratory Services Taipei offer the Sage™ prenatal screen, an advanced non-invasive prenatal screening solution using the latest developments in DNA technology to detect placental DNA in maternal blood.
Sage™ offers a menu-based chromosome analysis to estimate the risk of a fetus having Down’s syndrome and other genetic disorders.
Preimplantation Genetic Screening
Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) is the genetic profiling of embryos for chromosomal abnormalities prior to implantation during IVF.
The risk of having a pregnancy with a chromosome abnormality increases as females age.
PGS can be used at Yourgene Laboratory Services Taipei to select healthy embryos with the correct number of chromosomes.
Cardiomyopathy refers to diseases of the heart muscle. These diseases have many causes, signs and symptoms, and treatments.
In cardiomyopathy, the heart muscle becomes enlarged, thick, or rigid. In rare cases, the muscle tissue in the heart is replaced with scar tissue. As cardiomyopathy worsens, the heart becomes weaker. It is less able to pump blood through the body and maintain a normal electrical rhythm. This can lead to heart failure or irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias.
Yourgene Laboratory Services offer comprehensive Cardiomyopathy gene testing, targeting 62 genes.
Sudden Death Syndrome
Sudden Death Syndrome is an umbrella term used for the many different causes of cardiac arrest in adult who are under 35 years old. These conditions include thickening or abnormal structure of the heart muscle and irregularities of the electrical impulses that upset the natural rhythm of the heart. The sudden cardiac arrest genes are mostly inherited.
Yourgene Laboratory Services offer Sudden Death Panel genetic screening targeting 15 genes.
