Cytogenetics

Overview
The UK Clinical Cytogenetic Laboratory is certified through the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA), the College of American Pathologists (CAP), and is approved by the Childhood Oncology Group (COG). We provide chromosome analysis on a variety of specimens, including amniotic fluid, chorionic villus samples, tissue biopsies, products of conception, peripheral blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes and solid tumors. Cytogenetic studies are performed for prenatal diagnosis, to investigate infertility, to aid in identifying the cause of spontaneous abortions, to aid in determining the etiology of congenital anomalies, mental retardation, and learning disabilities, and to identify acquired chromosome abnormalities associated with neoplasia.
