Monostotic fibrous dysplasia

I am looking for a laboratory able to perform a mutation analysis of the G-protein involved in the pathogenesis of Albright syndrome, McCune-Albright syndrome and monostotic fibrous dysplasia. The patient with fibrous dysplasia ("Jaffe-Lichtenstein") that I am caring for lives in Munich, Germany, and would be interested to be informed about the likelihood of transmission to offspring. There is a rib biopsy sample (probably paraffin-embedded) available and blood samples can also be provided. A laboratory close to Munich would appear most suitable.
