Preimplantation genetic screening PGS can benefit any couple at risk from passing on
genetic\chromosomal abnormalities.

Promoting excellence and professionalism in the delivery of laboratory services through patient – focused,
cost – effective diagnostic services.

The GenaTi team of researchers and scientists continues to work tremendously hard in order to set up new research
priorities and strategic directions for the GenaTi that are crucial to strengthening Saudi Arabia's health care system.

GenaTi contributes to the prevention of genetic diseases in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by offering
pre-implantation genetic diagnosis and screening in its new IVF clinic



After years of Sanger sequencing being adopted as the gold standard in molecular diagnostics and research, Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is about to finally and completely take over. NGS is also known as high-throughput sequencing (high yield sequencing) or Massively Parallel Sequencing as it allows to sequence many fragments in parallel. There are several NGS systems, which have been developed by different companies. However, all these systems share at least three fundamental steps: DNA preparation and immobilization (i.e. the preparation of the so-called sequencing library), amplification and sequencing. The GenaTi High Throughput Sequencing Research Services (GHTSRS) utilize the capabilities of the Illumina NextSeq500 platform. This Platform produces up to 150 Gb of sequence within 24 hours. For smaller output, the MiSeq platform from Illumina as well as the Ion Torrent Personal Genome machines from Thermofisher are also available. Library generation is based on the researcher’s requirements and technical details that will be determined after technical consultation with the GenaTi expert advice team.
