Opening hours: Monday to Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm
Our laboratory provides a clinical molecular genetics service for a range of genetic disorders. We are a UKAS accredited medical laboratory No 8688.
We have a history of introducing new technologies that improve the genetic testing service in collaboration with the Guy's and St Thomas' Trust(GSTT) Clinical Genetics centre and other healthcare partners.
Genetic testing is provided by DNA sequencing (Sanger and Next Generation), MLPA, Genotyping and RNA analysis as indicated.
Aliquots of DNA are stored for future use whenever possible. Samples are also accepted for DNA banking where analysis is currently not available, but where this may become possible in the future.
The laboratory offers testing on a range of disease and specialises in testing for:
Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystrophy
Congenital Muscular Dystrophy
In addition, the laboratory provides testing that contributes towards specific multidisciplinary services such as for Lynch Syndrome, Glycogen Storage Disease and Nucleotide Excision Repair.
