​​Cytogenetics Laboratory

The Cytogenetics Laboratory at KKH provides a comprehensive range of diagnostic tests for prenatal, postnatal and oncology specimens. Chromosomal abnormalities account for a significant proportion of patients with fetal malformations, congenital abnormalities, intellectual/developmental disorders, early pregnancy loss, stillbirths, recurrent miscarriage and infertility. Cytogenetics tests are also important for the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options for haematological and oncological patients.

Our testing services include:

•Chromosomal analysis (karyotyping) for prenatal samples, peripheral blood, products of conceptions (fetal tissues), bone marrow aspirates, lymphomas, solid tumours, embryonic and mesenchymal stem cells.

•Fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) assays on fresh (including Amniotic fluid, chorionic villi sampling, peripheral blood, product of conception, tumour tissue) and FFPE tissues.

•Chromosomal Microarray analysis (CMA) for congenital disorders (pre- and postnatal) and oncologic samples (solid tumours, FFPE tissues).

The laboratory works closely with Clinicians and Genetics counsellors in Genetics Services, haematologists, pathologists and oncologists to provide accurate, reliable and clinically relevant results in a timely manner.
