Cytogenetics

Cytogenetic testing is utilized to detect numerical and structural chromosome abnormalities in metaphase cells.

HNL Lab Medicine’s state-of-the-art Cytogenetics laboratory provides the most advanced chromosome analysis for identifying and diagnosing genetic abnormalities, to be used in:

  • Cancer Diagnosis
  • Disease Classification
  • Monitoring and Treatment Decisions
  • Understanding a Genetic Cause of Spontaneous Miscarriages or Infertility
 
 

As the medical world moves toward personalized medicine, cytogenetics enables us to be a partner in the effort to help treat the right patient with the right drug at the right time.

Utilizing both conventional karyotyping and FISH (fluorescent in situ hybridization), we can diagnose, treat or predict risk for individuals with:

  • Congenital Malformations
  • Mental Retardation
  • Multiple Spontaneous Miscarriages
  • Fertility Issues
  • Products of Conception
  • Hematological Malignancies
  • Neoplastic Processes
