Cytogenomics is the study of genetics that studies chromosomes and their relation to diseases. Through a combined analysis of chromosomes and molecular tests, clinicians can better understand and treat disease states.

By using continuous quality improvement, we can build consistency through standardization that can reduce errors and provide reproducible results. Many laboratories have questions about Lean practices and different ways it can be impactful to cytogenomics.
