The laboratory performs a comprehensive range of genetic tests ranging from single gene disorders to
whole chromosome aneuploidy. This integrated approach allows the most appropriate tests to be applied
to each clinical application. Our Germline Genetics Programme testing services include prenatal testing
for at risk pregnancies, postnatal testing for conditions such as developmental delay and infertility,
and specific testing for a variety of syndromes and single gene disorders. Our Cancer Genetics
Programme testing services include blood and tumour cancer diagnosis and prognostic stratification,
monitoring of treatment response and surveillance, and post-transplant chimerism monitoring.
We follow rigorous standards which are externally audited by the
United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). We are also members of external quality assurance schemes
run by UKNEQAS and the European Quality Assurance Network, which monitor our analytical and interpretative
performance and ensure that our patients get the highest possible level of care.
