About us

Committed to You and Your Patients

What do we do?

We provide Patients, Professionals, and Laboratories with our long-standing experience in Medical Genetics, Next Generation Sequencing, and ancillary Molecular Applications to serve them in the diagnosis of rare and ultra-rare disorders. In addition to that, Breda Genetics is pioneering the real next generation of Predictive Genetic Medicine for healthy individuals, which we base on the same analyses we perform for rare disease patients: Whole Exome Sequencing and Whole Genome Sequencing.

For highly experienced Geneticists Colleagues, our Technical Division also offers avant-garde sequencing-only services based on a rarefied portfolio of sequencing solutions. The combination of exceedingly high coverage depth and fast turnaround times can answer the most demanding requests by top-level Professionals. We have the right solution for you, from the Rapid Exome to Whole Genome Sequencing to Full Genome Bisulphite.

Genetic Laboratory

The Breda Genetics Team unfolds its leading knowledge in Medical Genetics and Next Generation Sequencing by exploiting its own laboratory structure and collaborating with biotechnological partners of primary global relevance. By nurturing this winning alliance of knowledge and sequencing capacity, Breda Genetics maintains the promise of being a real One-Stop Solution in Medical Genetics for Physicians and Patients.

Being the Leaders in Medical Genetics means

Being rooted in a Strong Academic Background

Developing Dexterity and Velocity from an Intense Daily Routine

Pushing the Mind to Persistent Professional Updating

We know the importance of keeping up to date with the latest scientific discoveries, sequencing technologies, and clinical evidences.

For this reason, Breda Genetics invests significant resources in staff training: each member of the scientific team is scheduled to accumulate an average of 100 hours of education yearly, including the participation to international events, external clinical courses and in house educational programs.

External Quality Assessment

We enroll in quality assessment programs each year to keep our analyses at top-level performances.

Since 2018, Breda Genetics has taken part in one of the most prestigeous programs of its kind: the European Molecular Quality Network, hosted by the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT).
