Molecular Biology involves testing of DNA or RNA from patient blood, tissue, fluids or swabs to identify infections, diagnose inherited diseases or cancer.
Commonly used method to identify and quantify DNA or RNA sequence is Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR).
Some of the tests performed in molecular biology department are:
- HCV viral load
- HIV viral load
- SARS Cov-2 (Covid 19)
