Sheffield Diagnostic Genetics Service

Genetics lab

Sheffield Diagnostic Genetics Service (SDGS) includes both cytogenetic and molecular genetic disciplines. We deliver first-class genetic analysis services to the UK and internationally for a wide variety of inherited and acquired genetic disorders.

The Laboratory holds full CPA Accreditation, is a member of the UK Genetic Testing Network (UKGTN) and participates in external quality assessment schemes UK NEQAS and EMQN.

Please note that Clinical Genetics is a separate area of genetics at the hospital which helps diagnose conditions and supports patients and families with one to one consultations.
