Molecular Pathology

Molecular Pathology Lab

The Molecular Pathology Laboratory at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is committed to the development of new and advanced molecular testing for disorders in oncology and hematology, genetic, and infectious diseases. Testing in the laboratory includes targeted mutation detection, quantification and mutation profiling of several types of cancers (leukemia, melanoma, lung and colon), diverse testing in the area of neuromuscular diseases including an emphasis on congenital and limb-girdle muscular dystrophies, and specialized molecular virology testing.

Requests for University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics (UIHC) in-house testing can be obtained through the Laboratory Services Handbook. Requests for University of Iowa Diagnostic Laboratories (UIDL) testing can be obtained through their Test Directory Handbook. The UIDL operates the Reference Laboratory/Outreach Client Services for clinical and anatomic pathology testing and consultation. The Molecular Pathology Requisitions for UIDL requests for testing can be found within each test entry.
