Genesis Laboratory Management, LLC (Genesis Lab) offers a full-service pathology lab including cytopathology, dermatopathology, GI pathology, urologic pathology, gynecologic pathology, surgical pathology, podiatric pathology, and much more.

Our team of GI pathologists provide the following expert diagnostic services: accurate and highly professional diagnostic services, fast turnaround time, as well as second opinions and consultations services for significant or unusual findings.

Testing:

  • Immunohistochemistry (IHC) which is often coupled with molecular diagnostics
  • Tumor Marker Microsatellite Instability (MSI) Panel - This test allows physicians to assess the need to test individuals or their family members for Lynch Syndrome - associated mutations. Lynch syndrome, or Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC), is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes and accounts for about 3% to 5% of colorectal cancers.
  • Her2 by FISH and IHC for Gastric and Esophageal Cancers
  • HPV (ISH) - Genotyping to detect HPV low risk/high risk in a lesion
  • Barrett's FISH - This test looks at MYC, p16, Her2 and ZNF217 genes to determine the risk of having high grade dysplasia and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EA) to determine the prognosis of Barrett's Esophagus (BE).
  • Esophageal Cytology Brushings - This is a cytopathologic evaluation for detection and characterization of malignancy in the esophagus.
  • Comprehensive IHC Test Menu
  • Special Stains - These are used to aid in the diagnosis for Organisms and Metaplasia.

Our board-certified pathologists provide expert interpretation of skin excisions and neoplasms, soft tissues, punch biopsies, dermatitis, subcutaneous masses, bones and nails.
