The Molecular Genetics Laboratory provides genetic testing for a variety of conditions and diseases.
We are the provincial inherited disease laboratory, providing diagnostic, predictive and prenatal testing for inherited genetic diseases, except inherited cancers.
Patients can access our services through their doctor, or upon referral through the Department of Medical Genetics at BC Women's Hospital + Health Centre (see Quick links).
We do not provide test results directly to patients. If you are looking for test results, please contact your doctor or genetic counsellor.
Physicians can access our services by contacting us directly by phone or email (see Contact us), or by referring patients to the Provincial Medical Genetics Program at BC Women's Hospital + Health Centre (see Quick links).
You can find information about specific tests on our website (see Quick links).
The laboratory is part of the Division of Laboratory Genetics, Pathology & Laboratory Medicine.
