Biolab participated in the 8th International Congress for Fertility and Genetics that was held by the Jordan Society for Fertility and Genetics from 24-26 April 2019 in Kempinski Amman Hotel. Biolab – the Kingdom’s leading diagnostic laboratory that is accredited by four international bodies – highlighted Janini test that was presented in the congress’s expo. Janini is the latest and most advanced genetic testing that pregnant women can undertake starting from 10 weeks of pregnancy without causing any miscarriage risk on the mother nor baby as it only requires a blood sample from the mother and thus has no risk in any way.

Reproductive surgery and reproductive endocrinology and cryopreservation and andrology and embryology and genetics are all topics that were discussed during the congress by reputable doctors and professors in fertility and genetics.  

Marking this occasion, Biolab’s CEO and founder, Dr. Amid Abdelnour, emphasized that Biolab is proud to have reached the most advanced diagnostic technologies through the Janini test that is considered the first of its kind in the Middle East. He pointed out that the test is operated with an accuracy rate of 99.9%. He added that Janini screens for the three most common ‘trisomy’ conditions present at birth; Down’s Syndrome, Edwards’ Syndrome and Patau Syndrome, caused by extra or missing genetic information in the baby’s DNA, in addition to the baby’s gender. He assured that Biolab constantly seeks to share and disseminate the latest developments and scientific knowledge with the rest of the world.

As a regional pioneer in the field of medical diagnostics and laboratory testing, Biolab provides an extensive portfolio of more than 700 diagnostic services, catering to individuals, physicians, hospitals, and other laboratories across Jordan and the Middle East.
