These services are mainly provided by Diagnostic Genomic Medicine Unit, DGMU. The COMS/DGMU Cytogenetic Laboratory provides routine and high-resolution karyotyping, Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH), and Array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH). Diagnostic services for prenatal and postnatal congenital disorders and neoplastic/oncologic disorders are routinely performed. The prenatal indications: abnormal fetal ultrasound, advanced maternal age, parental balanced chromosome rearrangement, and positive maternal serum screening – indicates an increased risk of fetal chromosomal abnormality. While, postnatal clinical indications include: dysmorphic features, congenital anomalies, developmental delay, mental retardation, infertility and multiple spontaneous abortions.
