Cytogenetics Lab

The UF cytogenetics laboratory is operated by the Department of Pathology; Dr. Roberto Zori is the lab director. The lab offers chromosome testing, which includes prenatal, postnatal, and cancer diagnostic studies. In addition to conventional or classical chromosome studies (aka, karyotyping), it also offers molecular diagnostic studies by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and, in some cases, by array-based comparative genomic hyridization.

Cell culture, processing, and shipping for outside laboratory testing (ie. biochemical and/or DNA molecular studies) are also available.

For additional information regarding specific tests offered please follow the links provided below or call us at (352) 265-0111, ext. 7-2009 or visit the Cytogenetics web site.
