Cytogenetic labs have been at the forefront of diagnosing and predicting the prognosis of diseases for decades. Following the completion of the human genome project, the capacity to comprehensively analyze the human cancer genome has expanded significantly. Digital karyotyping and molecular testing have advanced to allow for the detection of DNA copy number alterations in cancer at the whole-genome scale.
Since undergoing the digital revolution, Cytogenetic labs have made significant strides in the diagnosis and prognosis of both cancer and constitutional disorders. Companion diagnostics and other personalized medicine tests have become routine in patient care and the need for automation and workload efficiencies is on the rise.
Digital imaging and analysis and automated workflows provide labs accurate, repeatable and standardized analysis, all the while increasing turnaround time of patient results.
