Ideal Fertility has a fully functional and well-equipped molecular biology lab which does routine infectious disease detection using real time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology which is a gold-standard method worldwide. The instruments and kits have international validation and tests are standardized to give the most accurate result.
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV): This is an infectious RNA virus which causes high and low-grade infections. The disease is mostly sexually transmitted and present in women with vaginal discharge and genital warts. HPV infections are main cause of cervical cancer in women which is one of the most common and lethal female cancers. This lab does diagnosis and treatment of HPV by PAP-genotyping combination approach as the primary testing on the way to prevent cervical cancer. The most infectious strains of the virus are HPV-16 and 18. Other strains cause a milder infection, but patients need to be cautious. A CE-IVD kit is used to detect these strains by real- time PCR and results are generated in a matter of hours.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB): Tuberulosis (TB) is a bacterial disease which can infect various parts of the bogy such as lungs, peritonium, heart, kidneys, genitalia etc. Samples are collected according to the infection symptoms and detection of the bacterial DNA in the sample is done using real time PCR. Early detection ensures faster and more effective treatment.
Tropical Diseases: seasonal and tropical diseases like Dengue fever, chikungunya, H1N1 and H3N2 swine flu are detected using real time PCR. This test takes a few hours as compared to regular microbiological methods. This ensures faster treatment and availability medication.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Hepatitis B virus (HBV): AIDS causing HIV virus and Hepatitis B virus can also be tested.
