Facilities at the Genetics Laboratory
Our state-of-the-art laboratory offers Cytogenetic tests such as Karyotyping and FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization) as well as Molecular Genetic tests like PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) for Y chromosome microdeletions.

Cytogenetic tests are carried out on suspicion of a chromosome anomaly in newborns, children, adults, the unborn child in high-risk pregnancies or an aborted fetus (products of conception). They are also carried out in patients with blood cancer or leukemia, and help in their diagnosis and management. Tissue culture is done in a majority of cytogenetic tests, hence strict aseptic precautions are necessary for sample collection. Karyotyping involves the analysis of all 23 pairs of chromosomes. The FISH test is used when certain specific chromosome abnormalities are suspected.
