The Microarray Laboratory at URMC Labs is helping to deliver Microarray CGH in the most effective manner possible. We provide access to a complete range of microarray CGH testing (postnatal, prenatal and cancer) in an environment staffed by doctors who are recognized as leaders in their fields.
URMC Labs is the first clinical laboratory to be granted a permit by the New York State Department of Health’s Clinical Laboratory Evaluation Program to run Microarray CGH testing as an approved test. We are also part of the International Standard Cytogenomic Array Consortium (ISCA).
- We are staffed by knowledgeable NYS licensed Clinical Laboratory Technologists with extensive training in molecular genetics.
- We are supported by a skilled cytogenetics laboratory that performs traditional karyotyping and Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH) on prenatal, postnatal and cancer specimens.
- We offer competitive pricing for Microarray CGH analysis that includes FISH confirmation of positive findings and parental FISH confirmations, if needed.
- M. Anwar Iqbal, Ph.D., FACM Director of Microarray CGH Laboratory and Associate Director of the Cytogenetics Laboratory.
URMC Labs uses oligonucleotide microarray chips based on the design of the International Standard Cytogenomic Array Consortium and developed by Emory Genetics Laboratory. We also use chips based on the design of the Cancer Cytogenomics Microarray Consortium and developed by URMC, Tulane and Harvard. All of our chips are manufactured by Agilent Technologies Inc.
For more information or to submit samples for testing, contact us at (585) 758-0494.
Samples may be submitted through multiple draw stations located throughout Rochester, by courier services from some outlying hospitals and by FedEx using our prepackaged supplies.
The laboratory has a technologist on-call 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer any questions or concerns.
