The MSU Clinical Genetics Laboratory consists of four service branches including Clinical Cytogenetics, Prenatal Screening, and Molecular Genetics Laboratories including SNP Microarray. These laboratories are members of the MSU Health Team and are CLIA/CAP certified. They offer a wide range of clinical genetics services including cancer, prenatal, pediatric and adult genetics, including Huntington’s disease consultations, to patients in mid-Michigan, Flint and Kalamazoo. The team is staffed by a board certified clinical geneticist trained in dysmorphology and multiple board certified/board eligible genetic counselors. Patients are evaluated by analyzing available family and medical history data to determine the most appropriate genetic testing. The laboratories provide counseling for patients with various genetic disorders, assist in implementing medical management recommendations and offer support and guidance for families. They also determine and seek insurance preauthorization for various genetic analyses, coordinate testing and followup with results.
