The Genetic Diagnostic Laboratory
Due to laboratory renovations, we may be experiencing slightly longer turnaround times than anticipated.
The Genetic Diagnostic Laboratory is a non–profit laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania. Established in 1994, the Genetic Diagnostic Laboratory has had the pleasure to serve patients, physicians, and other members of the medical and research community in many states in the U.S., as well as in over 24 countries worldwide.
Our mission is to evaluate an individual's DNA to discover a genetic cause for their disease or physical symptoms, provide interpretation of the genetic finding and its association with disease, develop new methods for analyzing genes, and introduce new testing to improve patient care.
The Genetic Diagnostic Laboratory is CLIA certified and has state permits for California and Maryland. The staff of the Genetic Diagnostic Laboratory includes highly trained and experienced laboratory technicians, as well as a genetic counselor, who work continually to provide their services in a timely and professional manner.
Changes are coming soon! Starting on January 1, 2014, the Genetic Diagnostic Laboratory will be introducing many new changes, including new requisition forms, expanded testing options, and revised prices and CPT codes. Please check back for more updates.
- The Genetic Diagnostic Laboratory WILL BE CLOSED FROM DECEMBER 24TH - JANUARY 1ST. The laboratory will reopen on January 2, 2014. If blood samples are drawn during this time, please refrigerate and send once the lab reopens. Thank you and happy holidays.
