The Clinical Cytogenetics service provides genetic testing for chromosome abnormalities associated with congenital disorders and cancer. We employ both conventional cytogenetic and molecular cytogenomic approaches including fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to analyze genomic abnormalities at chromosomal and subchromosomal levels.
Cytogenetic test results are important in managing patients with constitutional genetic conditions and cancer, as well as providing risk assessments for genetic counseling. The laboratory also offers cell culture and cryopreservation of clinical specimens. Consultation on test results and testing strategy are available from the clinical cytogeneticist.
We are staffed from Monday through Saturday and our supervisor can be reached by:
