Since genetic disorders have become a crucial part of laboratory medicine, we recently established our ‘Genetics Unit’ which provides comprehensive testing of genetic diseases that affect the lives of a substantial number of people.
Our ‘Genetics Unit’, through its biochemical, molecular and cytogenetic services, offers testing for a wide variety of genetic disorders ranging from single gene disorders to whole chromosome aneuploidy.
In the unit we also offer genetic counseling done by experienced consultants who work closely with our clinical pathologists to ensure optimal care and support to our patients. Consultancy services in the unit include pre-marital and prenatal counseling. The clinical geneticists are always available for inquiries from our referring physicians to discuss cases related to genetic diseases, with or without morphologic abnormalities.
The scope of work covers hereditary and genetic disorders such as: hereditary anaemias (thalassemia), mental disabilities, genetic causes of infertility and sex determination.
