Medicover Genetics and Fimlab Laboratories announce partnership to provide genetic testing services in Finland

Medicover Genetics and Medicover Diagnostics Finland are proud to announce the partnership with Fimlab Laboratories, to provide genetic testing services to patients residing in Finland.

With a legacy of over 25 years in genetic diagnostics, Medicover Genetics is committed to delivering the highest standards in genetic testing, leveraging the latest in sequencing technologies and expert medical and scientific validation.

Fimlab Laboratories is the largest healthcare laboratory company that provides laboratory services, training and research for 5 major regions in Finland with more than 110 locations, 1200 laboratory professionals and with 17 million diagnostic tests performed annually. 

Following a competitive tender process, Medicover Genetics was selected by Fimlab Laboratories as the sole provider of subcontracted genetic testing services for hereditary conditions during a four-year partnership. The services provided include a customized and tailor-made portfolio that meet the unique needs of the Finnish diagnostic system ranging from single gene and gene panel testing to whole exome sequencing, which will complement Fimlab’s own genetic testing portfolio.

The local entity in Finland, Medicover Diagnostics, has worked closely with Fimlab Laboratories and their clinicians to deliver a seamless and efficient operational process, allowing for genetic tests to be ordered with ease.

This partnership marks an important milestone for Medicover Genetics, as we continue to build strategic partnerships and expand our services into new geographies, in collaboration with reputable local partners.
