“Before we began using WiCell’s cytogenetic services, we often waited weeks or even months to receive karyotype data. Experiments often were delayed and our lab staff was frustrated. The fast turnaround and high levels of communication from the WiCell Cytogenetic Lab has allowed karyotyping to become a routine quality control measure for us, not a bottleneck to research projects.”
