Welcome to the Cytogenetics Laboratory!

We are proud to be part of The James Comprehensive Cancer Center at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center where we combine innovation, education, experience and expertise to provide our physician teams with the highest quality cytogenetics testing for their patients.

Our laboratory has over 250 years of combined experience in oncology cytogenetics and is equipped with the most advanced instrumentation and automated technologies for cell harvest, slide preparation, staining, and slide scanning. Our new state-of-the-art, AI-assisted chromosome analysis software streamlines technologist workflow and analysis. Our extensive molecular fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) testing menu provides another powerful tool to assist our physicians in establishing diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutic options for their patients. We provide diagnostic as well as follow up testing, with comparisons to past results, to keep our physicians informed.
