Hi-Precision opens its Advanced Lab Solutions Clinic in Centuria Medical Makati
The Philippines is slowly progressing in terms of availability of diagnostic tests. Tests for early detection of hereditary cancer and pre-natal gender are just among the many advanced diagnostic tests available for us today.
Centuria Medical Makati, a medical IT outpatient center located in Century City, Kalayaan Avenue in Makati, recently opened Advanced Lab Solutions, a new clinic brand under Hi-Precision Diagnostics. It offers advanced tests such as the Myriad myRisk Hereditary Cancer test and the Panorama Non-Invasive Pre-Natal Screening. With hereditary cancer testing, the early detection of cancer can prepare a person in understanding risks and decisions about his health. On the other hand, the Panorama Non-Invasive Pre-Natal Screening can leave new parents at ease especially those with high risk pregnancies, couples who are over 35 years old, and parents with a history of genetic defect.
The hereditary cancer test aids in detecting gene mutations associated with different forms of cancers such as breast, ovarian, colorectal, pancreatic, melanoma, prostate and endometrial while the Panorama test not only detects a baby’s gender but also genetic abnormalities such as Down Syndrome, Edwards Syndrome, Patau Syndrome, Triploidy, and certain sex chromosome abnormalities.
Hi-Precision Diagnostics is the country’s largest network of medical diagnostic facilities. It offers high quality medical services, including tests that are not readily available to most Filipinos through its international laboratory affiliates. It is also the first diagnostics clinic in the country to offer an online portal where patients can log in to get their results. Its clients can also access their lab result history and records by downloading a Hi-Precision Diagnostics special app through their smartphones. Advanced Lab Solutions clinic at Centuria will give patients access to this technology.
Centuria Medical Makati will house more than 650 clinics as well as commercial spaces such as cafes, restaurants and pharmacy outlets in the near future. Other facilities include a Day Surgery Center, Radiology Center, Exclusive Recovery Suites, and an Ambulance Transfer Service. The Asia Breast Center is also locating in Centuria this year.
