Mount Sinai expands cutting-edge molecular testing

Today, Mount Sinai Hospital, announced that it has signed a three-year strategic alliance agreement with world-renowned diagnostic company Roche Diagnostics, to establish a Molecular Center of Excellence (MCOE). As a Roche designated MCOE, the Molecular Pathology Laboratory will offer physicians and patients the most advanced molecular diagnostics technologies such as Roche Diagnostics' patented Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), which is more sensitive and more specific than traditional diagnostic methods such as culture.

The Molecular Pathology Laboratory at Mount Sinai, through the leadership of Dr. David Zhang, has become nationally recognized for excellence in technology-based research and clinical molecular diagnostics. More than 6,000 medical laboratory tests are performed each year including 1) tests for infectious agents, such as Human Papiloma Virus and Epstein-Barr virus; 2) tests for genetic disorders, such as Factor V Leiden and Factor II (Prothrombin) gene mutation tests that provide fast and accurate tools to aid in the diagnosis and evaluation of patients with suspected thrombophilia; and 3) tumor oncology assays, such as tests for certain lymphocyte gene rearrangement which act as diagnostic markers for certain lymphomas and leukemias. These tests and other molecular diagnostics tests performed at Mount Sinai allow physicians to diagnose, treat and monitor diseases but most importantly, improve the lives of many patients seen at Mount Sinai.

"We are very excited to partner with Roche Diagnostics, a leader in the diagnostics industry," said David Zhang, MD, PhD, director of the Molecular Pathology Laboratory at Mount Sinai. "With the combination of Roche's cutting edge technologies and our expertise in clinical molecular diagnosis, we will be able to offer the most advanced diagnostic testing to Mount Sinai clinicians to assist with diagnosis, prescription and prognosis. The Molecular Pathology Laboratory has always strived for excel
