NeoTYPE™ Cancer Profiles
Cytogenetics, also called chromosome analysis or karyotyping, involves the study of normal and abnormal chromosomes and their relationship to disease. Cytogenetic studies are often ordered to answer diagnostic, prognostic and predictive questions in the treatment of hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. Acute leukemias, lymphomas and chronic myeloid and lymphoid disorders are examined to establish the exact nature of the acquired genetic change. In most leukemias and lymphomas, changes in chromosome number (ploidy) or chromosome structure (rearrangements) are often observed. Rearrangements including translocations, inversions, and deletions can usually be detected under a light microscope.
We offer traditional G-banding for metaphase analysis which includes the detection of chromosomal translocations, insertions, inversions, deletions and duplications. In addition, proprietary wet lab processes increase the length of chromosomes and improve resolution, allowing our team members to ensure that the highest quality karyotype is produced.
NeoGenomics’ cytogenetic testing is routinely performed on the following specimens:
