Benefits to Working With Us
At the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine (LMM), we tackle the toughest challenges associated with the advancement and adoption of personalized medicine. As innovative leaders, we build solutions from the ground up.
LMM incorporates scientific discoveries and breakthrough technologies into our clinical laboratory to provide the most comprehensive genetic information.
We offer multiple panels in disease areas, as well as genome and exome sequencing to help end the diagnostic odyssey. By offering panels that test across clinical presentation we can improve the chance that clinicians and patients will find the disease causing gene variants.
For example, the Pan Cardiomyopathy panel tests 51 genes that cross the cardiomyopathy presentations of HCM, DCM, ARVC/D, CPVT, LVNC, and Fabry disease. LMM testing is thorough and complete to achieve maximum technical accuracy. For all Next Gen Sequencing based tests, we take additional steps to Sanger confirm all clinically significant variants and to fill in regions with insufficient coverage. When available, we also offer copy number variant analysis on the panels to detect large deletions.Less
Our GeneInsight® information technology (IT) platform – one of the most advanced systems in the industry – streamlines the management, sharing, and interpretation of vast amounts of genetic data.
The system facilitates the process of generating concise, patient specific and consistent reports and helps the laboratory continuously improve its variant classification.
We provide comprehensive, accurate, evidence-based reports that are developed by a team of experts and are clinically meaningful. We believe that high-quality clinical reports are essential for the integration of genetic knowledge into clinical practice. And, our specialists are available to assist with interpretation of results.
Real-time clinical updates
As our knowledge base on genetic variants grows over time, we share this new information with you through GeneInsight Clinic®. We update clinicians as new information emerges on variants identified in patient profiles.
A team of experts
Our reputation for scientific leadership and quality is a direct result of our people. All of our Lab Directors hold faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School and actively pursue clinical research.
Their expertise contributes to the superior quality of our informative reports, with detailed interpretation and result reporting, that can be directly applied to patient care to help improve patient outcomes. And, our pioneering bioinformatics team is leveraging technology to streamline the data of new complex tests from the lab. But we are not just in the lab - we are client-focused and ready to work with you.Less
Our network infrastructure facilitates interconnectivity among genetic testing laboratories and clinicians. This functionality also supports the formation of inter-laboratory collaborations and knowledge sharing, and that enable laboratories to share knowledge, essential to new discoveries to improve patient care.
