New Expanded Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes Panel (59 genes)

Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes panel.Our Expanded Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes panel is specifically designed to diagnose the most common genetic causes of bone marrow failure including dyskeratosis congenita, Diamond Blackfan anemia, Fanconi anemia, familial bone marrow failure, Shwachman Diamond syndrome and congenital amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia, as well as inherited causes of neutropenia. Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes account for approximately 25 percent of pediatric patients and about 10 percent of young adult patients who present with aplastic anemia.

Targeted Deletion / Duplication Analysis

Custom gene sequencing.Our CAP / CLIA-certified diagnostic laboratory now provides targeted deletion / duplication analysis by comparative genomic hybridization (CGH).

To discuss targeted deletion and duplication analysis for your patient with a genetic counselor, call 513-636-4474.

Comprehensive Testing for Thrombotic Microangiopathy (aHUS and TTP)

TMA testing.In conjunction with the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute and Nephrology Clinical Laboratories, we now offer comprehensive testing for thrombotic microangiopathy (aHUS and TTP) including aHUS Genetic Susceptibility Panel, ADAMTS13 testing, TMA profile and HUS complement Activation Panel.

Whole Exome Sequencing

ExomeSeq.We now offer whole exome sequencing for patients with complex phenotypes for which single gene tests or gene panels are not available or cost effective.

New Cell Collection Kits

We now have validated saliva collection kits for DNA collection in patients with low white counts and  previous bone marrow transplantation, or for use in other situations where venipuncture is not practical.  Call 513-636-4474 for a free saliva cell collection kit.
