Clinical genetics and genomics laboratory

The Clinical Genetics and Genomics laboratory is based at Royal Brompton Hospital, London and offers diagnostic genetic testing for families and individuals at risk of inherited cardiac and respiratory conditions.   

The laboratory is part of the NHS South East Genomic Laboratory Hub (SE GLH) and is one of four UK laboratories commissioned to deliver cardiac testing in the NHS and one of three laboratories delivering testing for inherited respiratory conditions. All our testing is also available to non-NHS and international patients.

We offer next-generation sequencing (NGS), including copy number variant analysis, for the full spectrum of cardiac and respiratory conditions, thereby improving diagnosis for patients and their families.      

We are fully accredited by UKAS (laboratory No. 9295) to ISO 15189 standards. Our UKAS schedule of accreditation is available here. We regularly participate in appropriate European Molecular Genetics Quality Network (EMQN) and UK National External Quality Assessment Service (GenQA) Quality Assurance schemes. 

The lab works closely with clinical geneticists, genetic counsellors and specialist physicians from a wide range of medical specialties and an advanced nursing team. This ensures that patients receive professional advice before and after testing and.
