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.

Yale Clinical Cytogenetics Lab also serves as a core facility of cytogenomic analysis for institutional researchers. Our services include routine chromosome karyotyping, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and chromosome microarray analysis (CMA). 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.
