TESTING FOR MOLECULAR GENETICS

The molecular genetics laboratory primarily focuses on inherited disorders, providing essential information to genetic counselors, geneticists, and other physicians. Common genetic disorders assessed in the lab include:

  • fragile X
  • cystic fibrosis;
  • Fanconi anemia
  • disorders of brain iron accumulation.

The laboratory also offers specialized testing rare disorders. Current test development in molecular genetics focuses on expanding our test offering for additional genes/disorders and creation of gene panels, including inherited cancer panels. Knight Diagnostic Laboratories specializes in providing the most appropriate test panels to address clinical needs. Our Medical Directors are always available to provide expert consultation to referring physicians.
