Working with Our National Genetic Lab Services

Insight Medical Genetics offers comprehensive genetic testing for providers nationwide and in other countries through our molecular and cytogenetics laboratories.

Our sophisticated labs are certified by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).

Our highly trained technologists develop, perform and analyze a menu of sophisticated and complex screening and diagnostic tests for a wide range of genetic conditions. 

National Send-In Service

Insight combines high-level, leading-edge scientific procedures with personalized care. All send-in services are handled by licensed, board-certified genetic counselors who follow each specimen through the testing process and are readily available to explain and discuss results.

Here’s how this service works:

  • The referring provider contacts a genetic counselor at Insight, who can answer any questions about the selected test, specimen requirements, and other logistics.

  • The provider mails the required specimen to Insight.

  • Our genetic counselor will advise the Insight lab that a specimen will be arriving soon for testing. The lab processes the specimen upon its receipt.

  • Our lab director, in collaboration with a Genetic Counselor, writes a complete interpretation of the test to the referring provider and results are faxed by the Genetic Counselor. If the results of the test are positive, one of our genetic counselors will call the referring provider to discuss the options and our recommendations. Our genetic counselors are always available for further consultation and explanation.
