Molecular - Version MH Guide/Mendel - Software Application
Use worldwide knowledge to reliably determine the risk of genetic disease. MH Guide/Mendel is optimized for the evaluation of germline variants associated with hereditary diseases. The software application is a module of MH Guide and supports human geneticists in the evaluation of germline variants. Just like MH Guide, MH Guide/Mendel analyzes gene variants in comparison with data from Dataome, one of the world’s largest databases of biomedical information. The software annotates variants through automated access to relevant databases and uses international standards for variant classification. MH Guide/Mendel summarizes all relevant results in individual reports that provide users with clear, specific information on possible disease-causing genetic variations associated with hereditary diseases.
MH Guide/Mendel identifies, annotates, and classifies variants for hereditary diseases. The software automatically matches these with data from the comprehensive, regularly updated and quality-controlled database Dataome. This database includes the biomedical knowledge currently published on relevant hereditary diseases and disease-causing genetic variants.
The resulting report summarizes diagnostic information at a glance:
- What are the functional effects of the variants?
- To what hereditary diseases is the patient predisposed?
- What hereditary diseases can be diagnosed based on the identified genetic variants?
Approved for diagnostic use
MH Guide/Mendel is a module of MH Guide, which is approved as an IVD medical device in the EU and intended for diagnostic use.
By automatically accessing relevant databases and pre-classifying variants according to ACMG criteria, MH Guide/Mendel quickly and accurately identifies and annotates gene variants associated with hereditary diseases.
MH Guide/Mendel is optimized for use in clinical routine. The filtering and editing options within the software allow quick access to the most important information. Users can store their own variant classifications in the protected area of their account.
Easy to integrate
MH Guide/Mendel is a web-based application that can be immediately integrated into your lab routine. In addition, flexible interfaces make it possible to analyze standard data formats from the sequencing of commercially-available or proprietary gene panels, independent of the platform used.
Scalable analysis process
The optimized workflow of MH Guide/Mendel enables rapid conversion at a high sample throughput.
Molecular Health is committed to strict international standards – and is certified to EN ISO 13485. Users benefit from maximum safety and reliability.
The web-based software application MH Guide/Mendel can be easily integrated in the laboratory.
It enables the annotation and interpretation of genetic variants from common NGS or other analysis platforms. The software allows users to generate highly-automated individual patient reports, each of which can be expanded and refined. The application generates clear, customizable report templates in various formats (PDF, JSON, XML) and is compatible with VCF and FASTQ data formats.
MH Guide/Mendel meets the highest standards of data privacy, data security, as well as risk and quality management.
Approved for clinical use
