Diagnostic Lab

The diagnostic lab at Greenwood Genetic Center is named to honor the Center’s co-founder, Harold A. Taylor. The facility is made of three separate, but integrated laboratories: the biochemical lab, the cytogenetic lab and the molecular lab. All three laboratories use technologies to help physicians, patients and their families to better understand a disorder and the available treatments for it. The Greenwood Diagnostic Labs utilize traditional and cutting-edge tools such as next-generation sequencing, multiple array CGH platforms and expanding enzyme analysis testing to provide the most accurate and reliable diagnoses available. 

Lab requisitions must accompany all samples, and they should be completed by the referring physician or other healthcare provider. The process of ordering tests has been streamlined with our downloadable requisition forms and test finder. A complete list of test CPT Codes and Prices is also available. The test finder lists over 300 tests and general information for each test including:

  • Methodology
  • Specimen requirements
  • Turnaround time
  • CPT Codes
  • Costs

Laboratory faculty and staff are an invaluable part of GGC’s patient care team. They work closely with clinicians to facilitate testing and support genetic counselors and referring physicians with the information they need to provide answers to their patients.

Her newborn screening results did not make it back in time to prevent the crisis, and no one at our local hospital was familiar with the disease. They did not know how to treat her. Calls were made to Greenwood Genetic Center to confirm her diagnosis and guide her care. Dr. Champaigne and Ami...
