The Center for DNA Diagnostics

Under the direction of geneticist Sue Ann Berend, PhD, FACMG, The Center for DNA Diagnostics is the only laboratory in NWO that provides genetic diagnostic services that include conventional chromosome analysis, molecular cytogenetic (FISH) analysis, and DNA molecular diagnostics.

The Center for DNA Diagnostics Cytogenetic Laboratory performs analysis of:

  • Bone Marrow
  • Solid Tumors
  • Peripheral Blood Tissue (abortus, miscarriage, skin)
  • Fetal Blood (PUBS)

Molecular cytogenetic (FISH) testing for:

  • Chromosome Microdeletion Syndromes
  • Hematological Disorders
  • Recurrent Bladder Cancer Detection
  • HER-2/neu Amplification

The Molecular Pathology Laboratory performs testing for inherited genetic disorders including:

  • Hereditary Thrombophilia Disorders    
  • Cystic Fibrosis Carrier Screening
