Cytogenetics

Cytogenetics

Established with an insight to provide the best in chromosomal analysis, TRUSTlab Cytogenetics facility houses the latest in imaging technologies. Scientists provide an in-depth examination of chromosomes to determine chromosome abnormalities such as aneuploidy and structural abnormalities. To study the behaviour of chromosomes during mitosis and meiosis, we deploy techniques including karyotyping, analysis of G-banded chromosomes, as well as molecular cytogenetics such as fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH).
