Five to six litres flow through our veins.
And in the process they transport oxygen, antibodies, drugs, messenger substances, in short: a wealth of information about our state of health. Questions about acute infections, cholesterol levels or deficiency symptoms can thus be answered quickly. And we find indications of disorders that directly affect the fluid organ, such as anaemia, haemoglobinopathies, leukaemias and lymphomas. In addition to environmental influences, lifestyle and toxic reactions, a number of blood diseases can be attributed to hereditary changes. Among the most common are thalassemias, which are becoming increasingly important in medical care in our multi-ethnic society. With us, you will find the appropriate diagnostics for your problem. By combining laboratory medicine and genetics, we provide you with a holistic insight.
Beyond the selection on this page, you will find all our tests in our test list.
Leukemias and lymphomas
Cancer of the blood or lymph glands can be diagnosed and its course monitored by special laboratory and genetic analyses. To do this, we combine various tests:
- Flow cytometry
- Molecular genetics / NGS
As a result, you will receive comprehensive findings and a summarizing, interdisciplinary assessment from us. We will be happy to answer your questions or discuss your case.
Iron metabolism and anaemia
Anemia is one of the most common clinical pictures. Some forms of anaemia can be treated quickly and easily . Others are sometimes not clear up until years later. In addition to classic parameters for iron metabolism and vitamin metabolism, we also offer specialised diagnostics:
- Testing for haemoglobin variants and thalassemia
- genetic clarification in case of unclear hemoglobinopathies
- Bone marrow cytology and flow cytometry
We would be pleased to advise you before a diagnosis.
Thromboses and pulmonary embolisms are often - and often dangerous. If no clear cause can be identified or the disease occurred at a young age, it makes sense to clarify genetic causes. If you have any questions about the analysis, we will be happy to help you.
Bleeding too much or too quickly, a tendency to bruises - this is often difficult for both doctor and patient to grasp. This may be due to von Willebrand syndrome - the most common congenital cause of a tendency to bleed. With our von Willebrand analysis, we help to clarify suspected cases.
There are also other possible triggers for coagulation disorders. Which diagnosis makes sense should be discussed individually from patient to patient. We would be happy to advise you on the basis of clinical information before an analysis.
