HeLab Medical Center Analysis: history and specialization

The Helab Medical Analysis Center was born in 2019 in the heart of Florence, Piazza della Libertà 13. The LABORATORY, which had already been active for more than 10 years in the field of microbiology in other locations, is specialized in male and female uro-genital microbiological analyzes.

HeLab‘s Activity

HeLab works together with a team of different specialists, prepared to interface with the multiculturality hosted by Florence.

Focusing for more than 10 years on urogenital microbiological analysis, our Lab activity is equipped with the most innovative instruments (end-point and real-time PCR) and offers a wide range of analytical tests.

Why the name HeLab?

Our Lab’s name honors the story of a woman who died of cervical cancer: cancer cells were taken by uterine biopsy and treated with “telomerase”, an enzyme of the Human Papilloma Virus which allowed these cells (HELA) not to age.

HELA cells are widely used in genetic medical research still nowadays.

As our Lab is specialized in analyzing sexually transmitted infections, including Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), its name wants to honor this woman who contributed in developing so many studies and therapies about this topic.
