The Scientific Imaging Resource, in collaboration with the laboratory of Beverly Torok-Storb, has developed a karyotyping service. The goal of this service is to provide rapid chromosomal analysis of cell cultures and biopsies, for research purposes. Initially, the service will focus mainly on providing a chromosome count, but services may be expanded in the future to include the identification of chromosome aberrations (deletions, insertions, translocations), and other chromosomal features, depending on demand. We are currently karyotyping human and dog samples.

Typical turnover from sample to data is five to eight working days. Researchers interested in this service are strongly encouraged to contact the Resource for further details (206-667-4205 or imaging@fhcrc.org).
