The first Portuguese laboratory to carry out an extensive range of genetic testing in cardiology 

Genetest’s main undertaking is the investigation of genetic susceptibility of illnesses through testing and was the first laboratory in Portugal to present an extensive range of genetic tests in cardiology which has made it possible to diagnose a series of cardiovascular pathologies with an associated genetic component.

The only laboratory running genetic tests by means of saliva samples

Genetest, in partnership with IPATIMUP, have developed an innovative new saliva testing method for diagnosis of cardiovascular and gastroenterology illnesses. The sample is collected by scaling epithelial cells of the mouth by means of a supplied kit through which DNA is extracted for analysis.

The Laboratory

Genetest’s laboratories are located at the IPATIMUP facilities. Our team is made up of specialized technicians and doctorates in a variety of scientific fields.
