Hematologic Disorders

Genetic testing for hematologic disorders at Cincinnati Children's.

The Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics offers genetic testing for hematologic disorders. The laboratory draws extensive clinical expertise from recognized leaders in hematology and nephrology to provide comprehensive testing and expert interpretation of results. The Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics is CAP and CLIA certified.

Introducing: New Sequencing Panels for Erythrocytosis and Thrombocytosis

The Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics introduces two new sequencing panels for Erythrocytosis and Thrombocytosis. Our Erythrocytosis panel uses a combination of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) and Sanger sequencing to detect variants in nine genes known to cause erythrocytosis. Our Thrombocytosis panel uses NGS to detect variants in four genes that are associated with thrombocytosis.

Expanded: Platelet Disorders Gene Sequencing Panel

The Platelet Disorders Gene Sequencing Panel at Cincinnati Children’s has expanded to 67 clinically relevant genes related to genetically inherited platelet disorders. This comprehensive panel analyzes variants in genes related to adhesion and activation receptors, secretion and membrane regulation, and platelet production utilizing Whole Exome Sequencing technology.
