Bone Densitometry Measurement and Osteoporosis Clinic

Patients referred to the Clinic under the National Health Insurance System are treated free of charge. For others bone densitometry measurements and medical consultation is also available for payment. 

Bone densitometry measurements are completed with GE Lunar DPX- Pro Machine on the appointment priory agreed.  Results are immediately assessed by our specialist. Medication prescription is given, if needed.

Laboratory

For Phase II-IV clinical trials, laboratory testing is performed at central laboratories designated by the sponsors. However, upon request, we carry out biochemical and hematological testing with our high-capacity laboratory machines. Our laboratory is capable for viral, drug, pregnancy, hormone and drug levels, bone markers, special lipid panel and molecular biological testing. The biological, cellular, RNA and DNA samples are stored locally and upon request permanent storage is also possible.  Samples may also be stored (at -80oC or in liquid NO).

The laboratory is a permanent participant of the QualiCont’s external quality control system.

In addition to serving test results to clinical trials, our laboratory is into research as well, especially on the fields of examining the relationships between glucose and bone metabolism and the genetic differences determining them. Our partners include the Diabetes Center of Lund University, the Semmelweis University and the Budapest Technical University. The main object of our research is to determine the genetic background of type 2 diabetes and to develop an early diagnostic panel.

The laboratory regularly welcomes summer trainees.  Several Hungarian and international students have completed their thesis and dissertation in our laboratory, including the relevant molecular biology background work.

 Our clinical chemistry laboratory performs determinations on demand basis.

Molecular Biology Laboratory– 

Our Molecular Biology Laboratory was one of the first of its kind in Hungary starting its operation in 1994. With the financial support of the Balatonfüred Heart Center Foundation, researchers returning from abroad have set up a professional workshop that with its 25 years of experience represents a high quality and experience in this field.

Our laboratory provides cell biology and genotyping services requested by DRC’s sponsors.

Considering the high quality fitting of the laboratory and the wide range of experiences of our colleagues, our laboratory offers the following services: 

  • isolating DNA, RNA from blood, tissue samples, then freezing them (below -70 ° C), isolating peripheral mononuclear cells (PBMC) from blood, and storing PBMC samples in liquid nitrogen;
  • by using validated kits detecting gene polymorphisms involved and frequently investigated in drug metabolism (Cyp2D6, Cyp2C9, etc.) and also DNA, RNA viruses;
  • measuring gene expression levels (real-time PCR following reverse transcription) for research;
  • genotyping for scientific purposes.
