Molecular Genetics

Morphological findings, flow cytometry results, cytogenetics, patient history and CBC data are all considered before ordering further tests.

Based on cytogenetic results, further tests may be ordered which use genetic probes to detect the presence or absence of specific DNA sequences on chromosomes, leading to a highly-specific diagnosis. Tests are performed utilizing Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCR), Real-Time PCR and an extensive menu of Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH) probes.

Results for each of the disciplines are delivered directly to the physician as an integrated report, comprised of detailed individual test category reports and a single summary report highlighting the pertinent data from each testing discipline.
