Cytogenetics Laboratory

Cytogenetic Laboratory is the most recent addition to our department. It is the first state-of-the-art lab established in the region. Our laboratory will provide accurate and timely results for a variety of indications. The cytogenetic analysis will be reported by a qualified hematologist who also has significant training from the U.S.A. In our clinical setting chromosomal abnormalities account for a large proportion of patients with congenital malformations, intellectual disability, infertility, and recurrent pregnancy loss. For patients with hematologic/oncologic malignancies, cytogenetic testing plays a key role in the diagnosis, prognosis, and selection and monitoring of treatment. A wide range of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is also performed for hematological malignancies and solid tumors.
