Molecular cytogenetics and genomic analysis are now integral diagnostic and prognostic tools in various branches of medicine (e.g. obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, cardiology, neurology, internal medicine, hematology and oncology). The Molecular Cytogenetics Laboratory at Yale University School of Medicine provides a resource for clinicians and researchers from Yale and beyond for gene mapping, ordering of probes along chromosomes, somatic cell studies, and many areas of genetic research.
Our services include routine chromosome karyotyping, cell and tissue culture (most organs, both human and non-human sources), fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), banding techniques (HRB, CBG, GTW, replication, SCE, and others), and advanced array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) diagnostics. Types of specimens processed include blood, amniotic fluid, chorionic villus, products of conception, bone marrow, skin and solid tumor samples from clinicians as well as various cell lines and tissues from researchers.
We provide state-of-the-art services with fast turnaround time and competitive prices. We are constantly expanding such areas so please call us to see how we can help in your research projects.
