Healthcare Professionals

We support healthcare professionals with a variety of laboratory diagnostics services to detect (rare) diseases fast.

Your partner for specialized laboratory diagnostics.

ARCHIMEDlife offers both biochemical and genetic testing including biomarker analysis for Rare Diseases and beyond. From Inborn Errors of Metabolism to Oncology, we offer a large range of standardized tests to quickly attain reliable diagnostic results.

For several diseases, we provide diagnostics by using a Dried Blood Spot (DBS) filter paper card. It means you need to collect less blood which is much less harmful and minimal-invasive for your patient.

Why choose ARCHIMEDlife as your diagnostic laboratory partner?

  • Wide range of highly-specialized biochemical and genetic tests available
  • Highly-experienced team working internationally together with Health Care Professionals
  • High-quality testing including highest laboratory standards (ISO 15189)
  • Efficient processes and full medical reporting

Contact us for information about any laboratory tests: info@archimedlife.com. We are continually expanding our parameter catalogue.

Babies’ Health

The early detection of diseases can be life-saving and lead to best clinical outcome. We offer advanced Newborn Screening programs and tests including confirmatory testing.

  • Basic Program: A carefully tailored test panel of inborn errors of metabolism and other rare disorders. An exceptional approach to Newborn screening and superior to many screening programs around the world.
  • Premium Program. Extends our Basic Program with several additional focused disorder programs which are customizable to benefit the health of the baby.

In more complicated cases where a baby needs more than one of our standard screening options, we offer:

  • Biochemical 2nd tier testing
  • Monitoring
  • Genetics: A complete genetic program for confirmatory testing.

Nearly all can be performed using the initial Dried Blood Spot card.

Single programs available:

  • Lysosomal Storage Disorders: Enzymatic, Biomarker and Genetic confirmatory testing for dozens of diseases. Click here.
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA): Determination of SMN1 and SMN2 copy number, and gene sequencing.
  • Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID): A complete program including TRECs, KRECs and ADA-SCID. Click here.
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • X-ALD: Click here for more information.
  • Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia: Newborn screening to genetic testing. Click here for more information.

Oncogenetics

Inherited Cancer

We offer comprehensive genetic testing for inherited cancer genes. You may choose for testing of:

  • A specific known mutation in a family (also available for Dried Blood Spot filter paper cards)
  • Testing of all major cancer genes of your choice
  • Testing of comprehensive panels (e.g. BRCA1 & 2 and further 24 genes in hereditary breast/ovarian cancer)

Cancer Personalized Medicine

We provide molecular profiling of your tumor samples. You may send paraffin-embedded tumor tissue (FFPE) or circulating-free tumor DNA in peripheral blood samples (liquid biopsy). We offer testing of all major cancer genes, gene panels and exome sequencing (all genes).

We also offer CYP2D6 testing to determine metabolizer status.

Clinical Chemistry

We are specialized in Clinical Mass Spectrometry and continuously expand our parameters. We are currently offering:

  • Ethylglucuronide and Ethylsulfate in urine, plasma and serum: These parameters are relatively new, but specific parameters for the assessment of alcohol consumption
  • 25-OH-Vitamin D2/D3 in plasma and serum including C-3 epimeric form of 25-OH-Vitamin D3 (3-epi-25-OH-Vitamin D3) to avoid potential false high analytical Vitamin D values
  • *New* Therapeutical Drug Monitoring (TDM). Please click here:TDM (in German)

Stay in contact with us and we keep you informed on our list of parameters, you can also register for our monthly ARCHIMEDlife newsletter.
