With a network of specialized diagnostic laboratories, Karaiskakio Foundation in cooperation with the Center for the Study of Haematological Malignancies (CSHM), fulfill the clinical needs of the patients by providing a complete and integrated approach for the diagnosis of haematological malignancies and related diseases.
The Immunogenetics laboratory at Karaiskakio Foundation ranks high amongst the most modern and state-of-the-art laboratories in the region. It has received accreditation by the European Federation of Immunogenetics (EFI) since 2004. It is equipped with latest technology systems ensuring that the services it provides are of the highest quality and delivered in a timely manner to serve the needs of the patients.
Flow Cytometry Laboratory
The Flow Cytometry Laboratory represents one of the most important core laboratories of the Foundation. It is well equipped and staffed by a highly skilled team. The laboratory is responsible for the diagnosis and monitoring of disease burden and its technical ability and high quality services have rendered it the central reference laboratory for haematological malignancies in Cyprus today.
Molecular Haematology Laboratory
The Molecular Haematology laboratory offers a broad spectrum of molecular testing. This includes specialized tests for the detection of recurrent chromosomal aberrations and gene mutations, which affect the prognosis of certain types of leukemia. Valuable information derived from these tests serves to guide physicians for the detailed evaluation of therapy options as well as timely detection of disease relapse.
Cytogenetics methods represent a critical tool for the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of haematological malignancies. The Cytogenomics laboratory combines classical cytogenetics and modern cytogenomics methodologies for the study of haematological malignancies such as SKY-FISH and Microarray.
