NYGC Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory
The New York Genome Center has a state-of-the-art clinical diagnostic laboratory that utilizes next-generation sequencing technology to perform cutting-edge tests in the areas of genetics and oncology. The Clinical Laboratory is accredited by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and the Clinical Laboratory Evaluation Program of the New York State Department of Health (CLEP). It is licensed to perform clinical testing in all fifty (50) of the United States and the District of Columbia. The laboratory participates in the College of American Pathologists (CAP) proficiency testing. Click here to see our laboratory permits and accreditations.

NYGC is the first clinical laboratory offering New York State-approved clinical whole genome and transcriptome test for cancer.
Genetic Clinical Diagnostic Tests
Genetic Testing is available for patients with undiagnosed diseases as well as individuals who are seeking predispositional genetic testing. Click on the links below for a detailed description of the tests offered. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NYGC is the first clinical laboratory offering New York State-approved clinical WGS tests for undiagnosed disease and for predispositional genetic screening.
- Whole exome sequencing (WES) for undiagnosed disease
- Whole genome sequencing (WGS) for undiagnosed disease
- Whole genome sequencing (WGS) for predispositional genetic screening (P-GSc) for healthy individuals
- Targeted variant testing (Sanger-sequencing based assay to confirm the variants identified by research studies for genetic diseases)
