The Precision Medicine Unit (PMU), created in 2018, is a transversal research support platform that offers an innovative portfolio of services available to any researcher. Its mission is to drive, promote and execute quality translational research offering support in both Molecular Biology and Data Analysis techniques.

The unit’s staff has more than 14 years of experience in the development of activities related to Genetic Diagnosis, through the use of different omics platforms and other molecular techniques.

The MPU has state-of-the-art technologies and highly specialized personnel in its management, both in terms of laboratory techniques and bioinformatics.

The offer of services is open both to staff from the INCLIVA Foundation itself and from other institutions, both public and private.


The services presented below can be requested with or without data analysis.

    • Design, development, validation and sequencing of custom gene panels
    • Sequencing and analysis of exomes
    • Sequencing of complete genomes
    • De novo sequencing of small genomes
    • Sequencing of the total RNA or of the polyA fraction (RNASeq)
    • Sequencing of the microtranscriptome (smallRNAs / miRNAs)
  1. Illumina microarrays :
    • Methylation arrays (laboratory + analysis)
    • Genotyping arrays ( laboratory + analysis)
