About the company Over 30 years of practise with cytogenetic examinations

After 20 years of executing cytogenetic examinations with Diagnoza Medical
Laboratory situated at ul. Kurczaba 3 in Kraków, we decided to create Kariogen Cytogenetic Laboratory in 2009.

We are part of the National Chamber of Laboratory Diagnosticians, under the number: 2957 and are signed into the registry of non-public health care facilities. Since 2022, it has been part of the Gyncentrum Group. Kariogen Cytogenetic Laboratory is situated at ul. Mehoffera 10 in Kraków.

We specialise in post and prenatal, cytogenetic examinations.

Our patients:

  • Kids with birth defects, improper, psychomotor development and puberty disorders
  • Adults with e.g. infertility, miscarriages and with plans with procedures in assisted reproduction

In this time we executed a few thousand karyotypes and gained experience in the field of cytogenetics. In recent years we expanded our examinations with prenatal diagnostics (amniocytes from amniotic fluid, chorion, etc.), as well as, examination of samples after the miscarriage (chorion). Through the continued collaboration with Poradnia Genetyczna Kostyk i Kruczek, the patients can receive a full diagnostic consultation in our office.
