Cytogenetics Lab

The Cytogenetics Laboratory at Hayward Genetics Center was established in 1960, one of the first such labs in the country. We are currently the only regional laboratory performing a comprehensive list of cytogenetic testing including chromosome analysis and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) on peripheral blood, bone marrow, amniotic fluid, products of conception, skin biopsies, and solid tumors.  The general lab requisition form for constitutional (non-neoplastic) studies can be found here. A separate form for oncology studies is found here.

Please call the lab at 504-988-2995 if you have questions regarding ordering or testing.
