Kathmandu Center for genomics and Research Laboratory (KCGRL) Pvt. LTD at global hospital, Gwarko, Lalitpur is a registered state of art, multidisciplinary laboratory that is dedicated to provide patients and physicians a comprehensive and accurate cytogenetic and molecular testing.Two broad areas of our interest are:
Chromosome disorder form a major category of genetic disease. The incidence of chromosome abnormalities is relatively common in the population. In a clinical setting, chromosome abnormalities account for a huge proportion of cases involving spontaneous abortion, individuals with congenital malformations, mental retardation, infertility, women with gonadal dysgenesis etc. Meanwhile, the field of cytogenetics is now helpful in the diagnosis and prognosis of patients with hematologic/oncologic disorders.
Molecular diagnosis is a rapidly growing field for detecting and quantifying specific sequences in DNA or RNA that may be associated with disease, including single nucleotide polymorphism, deletions, duplications rearrangements, insertions and others. Clinical applications can be found in general areas like infectious diseases oncology, genetic disorders.
We combine the cytogenetic and molecular testing with comprehensive interpretation of test results by recognized geneticists.
