Molecular Cytogenetics and Genomics Laboratory Services

***Dear customers***

Emergency Note!

We are currently having a technical problem with our automated microscope system and there will be a delay in chromosome analysis.

Nevertheless, we are accepting blood samples and cell lines for karyotyping. We will culture and harvest the cells, and prepare chromosome preparations. The latter will be stored until the microscope problem is fixed and we can resume the analysis.


The Cytogenetics Service lab will take a Holiday break from December 20th, 2017 till January 6th, 2018. During this time, we will not accept or process any samples.



The Molecular Cytogenetics and Genomics Laboratory specializes in performing karyotyping analysis for a variety of animals such as cattle, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, dogs, cats and exotic species. Click here to download form.


FISH is carried out by request only and is used for:
  • Unequivocal identification of chromosomes involved in autosomal or sex chromosome aneuploidies;
  • Refinement of the analysis of complex chromosomal rearrangements (translocations, inversions, deletions);
  • Gene mapping. For more details click here.
