Molecular Genetic Diagnostics

The laboratory is located within the research building (Forschungshaus Forum 4 / Westring 3) of the Charité, Campus Virchow-Klinikum (CVK).

The laboratory offers molecular genetic analysis for patients with a wide spectrum of genetic disorders. If you wish to send a sample for genetic analysis, please contact the institute.

Please send  3-5  ml EDTA or citrate whole blood, or DNA; if you wish to send other types of samples, please contact us beforehand. For MLPA diagnostics (e.g. Sotos Syndrome) an EDTA whole blood sample is necessary.

A written consent form documenting the patient’s agreement to genetic diagnostics or a statement from the referring physician confirming the availability of such a form is required.


Please fill in the contract form for genetic diagnostics with great care. Samples must be sealed sterile and mixed with an inhibitor of blood coagulation (EDTA for DNA preparation, Heparin for cell culture). Please label sample tubes with the patient’s name or an identification code. Transport without cooling must be done within two weeks.
