About us

Driven by science, we’re on a mission to illuminate the path to healthier lives, one genetic discovery at a time.

Viafet’s Mission and Vision

Viafet stands for Viable fetus with the mission of changing lives through Science

All our genetics services aim to:

Prevent

the transmission of genetic diseases (PGT)

Screen

for genetic disorders (PGT, Prenatal, Cancer, Carrier, & Mutation Testing)

Diagnose

genetic diseases (Prenatal, Cancer, Diagnostic, & Mutation Testing)

Treat

disorders based on the patient’s genetic changes (Cancer & Diagnostic Testing)

History of Viafet

Viafet Genomics Laboratory, based in Sydney, Australia, opened its first laboratory in Saudi Arabia in 1999 through the efforts of Dr. Ali Hellani, a PhD in Molecular Genetics. In 2012, Dr. Hellani established the first genetics laboratory in the United Arab Emirates. Since then, Viafet has expanded its presence, with laboratories in Beirut, Lebanon, Erbil, Iraq, and Amman, Jordan

Dr. Ali Hellani

Lab Director, Founder

Dr. Ali Hellani, PhD, is a world-renowned Reproductive Geneticist with over 15 years of experience. In 1999, he obtained his PhD in molecular genetics from France. In 2001, Dr. Hellani established the first Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis laboratory in the Gulf Region at King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Saudi Arabia. Dr. Hellani went on to establish the state of the art Genetic Diagnosis Lab of Saad Specialist Hospital-Al Khobar. 2010 Dr Hellani obtained the Australian board in molecular genetics. In 2012, Dr. Hellani established the first Genetics Laboratory in the United Arab. Dr. Hellani has written over 60 publications and is a reference clinician for the screening of genetic diseases throughout the Middle East.

Dr Hellani obtained the first CAP accreditation on exome sequencing in the middle east in January 2017. Currently Dr Hellani is managing genetic laboratories in Australia, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon.
