"At the Fullerton Genetics Center Laboratory, we never forget the families behind the tests we are conducting, and although we may never meet you personally, we treat you with the care of any face-to-face provider."
~Hutton Kearney, PhD, FACMG
If you or someone in your family has or may have a genetic condition, you understand the stress that uncertainty may cause. We understand the need for a definitive diagnosis, and know that it is imperative that tests are conducted by experienced professionals with the most accurate methods available.
The Fullerton Genetics Center Laboratory has more than a decade of experience serving Western North Carolina. We also collaborate with laboratories and universities nationwide, serving patients throughout the US and Canada.
Our staff includes an American Board of Medical Genetics (ABMG) certified molecular geneticist, and an ABMG dual certified cytogeneticist and molecular geneticist. Additionally, we have an outstanding technical staff, most with more than ten years experience in clinical genetic testing.
We offer a comprehensive range of genetic tests your physician can order, including:
- Prenatal testing
- Testing to investigate the causes of infertility and pregnancy loss
- Carrier testing to determine reproductive risk
- Testing for genetic causes of autism, developmental delays, and birth defects
- Testing for a wide variety of pediatric and adult genetic conditions
These tests determine if a genetic cause can be identified so that you can understand the condition and receive counseling to determine the risks for your family.
