FISH/Cytogenetics Laboratory

The Medical Genetics and Cytogenetics Departments were founded in 1961 and are one of the oldest clinical genetics labs in the nation. The Cytogenetics and FISH labs process multiple tissue types from prenatal and postnatal sources for constitutional and neoplastic disorders. They can also process FFPE samples, such as HER2 and ALK/ROS1 for FISH testing.

The Medical Genetics labs conduct various germline tests using whole exome sequencing and microarray testing. They perform Fragile X, CF Screening, Prader Willi/Angelman Methylation, and have the ability to add on many other NGS panels as providers need.
