Medical Genetics was first founded in 1949 as the first Department of Medical Genetics in the United States. Our Medical Genetics Laboratory was established in 1961 and is one of the most established in the nation, providing you with the highest level of expertise for complex, high-demand genetic testing.

Some of the Genetic Lab services we offer include:

  • 1st and 2nd trimester screenings
  • Neural tube testing
  • Cancer AFP testing
  • Prenatal carrier screenings
  • Prenatal / Postnatal disease testing for cystic fibrosis
  • Fragile X
  • Uniparental Disomy
  • Cytogenomic prenatal microarray analysis
  • Cytogenomic postnatal microarray analysis
  • Chromosome analysis for:
