Genetika is the new flagship of MenaLabs Medical Laboratories. It is the best illustration of our mission statement: Make available locally relevant specialty diagnostics tests to improve the healthcare outcome in the UAE and in the Region. Genetic disorders are known to be a severe health issue which is a direct consequence of consanguinity and geographic isolates.
Genetika aims at having an impact and contribute to the national and regional healthcare outcome by focusing on human and reproductive genomics services. Science has made step forward and today allows to test embryos during the IVF procedure, thus reducing the risk of genetic abnormalities with the new-born babies (Disease prevention program).
Moving forward together, we are implementing personalized genomics services such as Oncogenetics and Pharmacogenetics in order to provide individually tailored cancer treatment with a better assessment of diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. None of this would be possible without a team having the expertise to deliver the best diagnostics information. Dr Karolina Kobus, the Director of Genetics facility combines the scientific, clinical and technical skills acquired in the most prestigious institutions in Germany and a regional understanding of the needs acquired during her previous assignment at Ministry of Health in Oman.
