The Mayo Clinic Molecular Genetics Laboratory offers a comprehensive genetic testing service for hospitals and clinics around the world. The exceptional research programs at Mayo Clinic coupled with a strong collaboration between our medical practice and clinical laboratories fosters cutting-edge, clinically relevant test development and interpretation.
The Mayo Clinic Molecular Genetics Laboratory offers a broad selection of tests from 3 general categories: congenital inherited diseases, inherited cancer syndromes, and molecular testing for biochemical disorders. Each patient-specific interpretive result report that you receive represents the collective teamwork of more than 50 expert medical and laboratory staff, including laboratory technicians, technical specialists, a quality specialist, supervisors, genetic counselors, and laboratory directors. Our 5 Board-certified laboratory directors and 5 Board-certified genetic counselors are readily available for both pre- and post-test consultation.
The test menu of the Molecular Genetics Laboratory is continually expanding as a result of active test development and basic research programs. The basic research program is particularly interested in the area of cancer genetics, and this translates to cutting edge clinical tests and testing algorithms for inherited cancer syndromes. The large, unique patient population of Mayo Clinic is an invaluable resource, and is of significant benefit to the laboratory with regard to test validation and clinical correlation studies.
