- Clinical Cytogenetic Laboratory
The Clinical Cytogenetic Laboratory provides routine service to SQUH departments like Hematology, Child Health, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Clinical Genetics and Urology and others. The laboratory processes an average of 800 samples per year. It offers comprehensive chromosomal analysis on peripheral blood, amniotic fluid, bone marrow and fine needle aspirations. Molecular cytogenetic analyses are offered using fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH). The results are reviewed and interpreted by a senior clinical cytogeneticist.
- National Tissue Typing Laboratory
National Tissue Typing Laboratory is the only national laboratory providing tissue typing to the country. The laboratory performs on average 2800 tissue typing related tests per year.
- Molecular Genetics and Genomic Laboratory
The Molecular Genetics and Genomics Laboratory provides routine service to SQUH and national hospitals. MGGL receives on average 1800 specimens for the purpose of DNA banking or genetic testing.
- Collaboration services with Biochemical Genetics Laboratory
The biochemical geneticists from the department also provide interpretive services to the Biochemical Genetics Laboratory, currently under the administration of the Department of Biochemistry.
