The Clinical Genetics and Genomics laboratory is based at Royal Brompton Hospital, London. The lab offers diagnostic genetic testing for families and individuals at risk of inherited cardiac and respiratory conditions. We offer next-generation sequencing (NGS), including copy number variant analysis, improving diagnosis of inherited cardiac and respiratory conditions (ICC and IRC). This includes testing for cystic fibrosis (CF), aortopathies, vasculopathies and familial hyperchloesterolaemia.
We are a UKAS-accredited medical laboratory (ISO15189:2012), and there are more details on our schedule of accreditation. We participate in European Molecular Genetics Quality Network (EMQN) and UK National External Quality Assessment Service (NEQAS) Quality Assurance schemes.
The lab works with clinical geneticists, specialist physicians from a wide range of medical specialties and an advanced nursing team, all based at the Trust. This ensures that patients receive professional advice before testing and after a result has been given.
