Quest Diagnostics and Genomic Vision Form Strategic Collaboration to Develop Genome-based Laboratory Tests
Date:7/14/2011

y which enables the direct visualization and quantification of the large genome rearrangements which underlie many diseases. In collaboration with the Timone Hospital in Marseilles (France) and thanks to funding from the French Muscular Dystrophy Association (Association Francaise contre les Myopathies, AFM), Genomic Vision has developed its first test for the diagnostics of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, a genetic disease. The company is now going to accelerate the implementation of its technology platform within European reference centers for genetic testing. For more information, visit www.genomicvision.com.

About molecular combing

Molecular Combing was co-invented by Dr. Aaron Bensimon. It enables the direct visualization of single DNA molecules and dramatically improves the genome-wide structural and functional analysis of DNA to identify disease-linked mutations. In the Molecular Combing process, the DNA fibers are attached to a specially-treated glass surface and then stretched and uniformly aligned ("combed"), in order to identify genetic rearrangements thanks to hybridization with specific fluorescent probes. Molecular Combing allows single-pass, high-resolution analysis of whole genomes and direct visualization of genomic defects that often cannot be detected by conventional technologies.
