Dr. Ritu
MSc. MS (UK), PhD Human Genetics, Chief Medical Geneticist

Dr. Ritu comes with a vast amount of experience as Chief Geneticist in India & abroad. She leads a dedicated team at Argenomics. Under her leadership, we have become the Pioneers in developing the first in-house NIPT in the Country.

Argenomics has the credibility to have tested the maximum number of chromosomal and single gene disorders.  We are committed to compassionate patient care, accurate & timely performance of tests, and generating new knowledge in the field of genetic disorders in India. Hence it is a one-stop solution for all genetic tests and investigations

Through our Medical Genetics Unit  we commission to give services at all stages of pregnancy – Pre implantation, Pre-Natal and Post-Natal Stages, so that every couple enjoys the fundamental right of parenthood and the joy of procreation.

Dr. Alex C Varghese
PhD Scientific Director and Chief Embryologist

Dr. Varghese received his PhD from University of Calcutta, India for his thesis based on ART.  His research interests are in assisted reproductive technology, in particular, in understanding the molecular and environmental causes and prevention of male infertility, genomics and metabolomics in embryology.

One of the major reasons for the recurring pregnancy losses and IVF failures is a disorder occurring in the endometrium which mainly concerns abnormal gene expressions. Now using the procedure Endometrial Receptor Gene Assay (ERGA), it is possible to...

This is the prenatal genetic testing of foetal chromosomal aneuploidies from Mother’s Blood. We have the credit of being the first centre in the Indian subcontinent to develop in-house Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) which is 99.9% sensiti...

  • cytogenetics

    Cytogenetics refers to the study of chromosome content in a cell. Argenomics has a fully equipped Cytogenetics lab with automated Karyotyping and FISH software. A complete Karyotype including structural chromosomal abnormalities and micro-deletions can be obtained using this facility. FISH is only performed on selected chromosomes. Cytogenetic studies can be done on a variety of samples like Peripheral blood, Amniotic fluid, CVS, and products of conception.

  • Hereditary Disease

    Targeted Mutation Screening  is a diagnostic tool completed through blood test that identifies the mutated gene or genes causing a genetic disease in your family. The identification of a gene mutations allows for further steps to be taken to prevent the passing on of the condition to future generations and may aid in the improvement of treatment of an affected individual. In most cases, after identifying the cause of genetic disease the couples can go with a Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) for Single Gene Disorders, a genetic test...


    Preconception genetic testing Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) involves a process of screening of embryos in the course of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). This helps to identify abnormalities in the chromosomes occurring due to aneuploidy. The main reason for recurrent IVF failures and in turn pregnancy losses is the higher risk of chromosomal errors that happ...
