Providing an extensive menu of probes for hematologic and solid Expert genetics and molecular pathology join together in the diagnosis of inherited cancer syndromes.

In addition to routine molecular virology the lab has particular expertise in infections of immunocompromised hosts.
The Hematologic Malignancy laboratory performs diagnostic and clinically actionable tests using a variety of molecular platforms.
tumor analyses by fluorescent-in situ-hybridization techniques
Diagnostic and clinically actionable tests developed at Oregon Health and Science University to provide the key information on mutations in solid tumors.
Knight Diagnostic Laboratories Cytogenetics Laboratory has extensive experience in validating and analyzing molecular abnormalities using fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH) techniques. 
Cytogenetic abnormalities may be confirmed by FISH from a library of over 75 validated probes and specific probe sets.
The molecular genetics laboratory primarily focuses on inherited single gene disorders, providing essential information to genetic counselors, geneticists, and other physicians.
Comprehensive constitutional cytogenetics testing performed on a variety of tissue types, including amniotic fluid, chorionic villi, bone marrow, blood, products of conception, and skin biopsies.

The Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University is a pioneer in the field of precision cancer medicine. The institute's director, Brian Druker, M.D., helped prove it was possible to shut down just the cells that enable cancer to grow. This breakthrough has made once-fatal forms of the disease manageable and transformed how cancer is treated. The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center between Sacramento and Seattle – an honor earned only by the nation's top cancer centers. It is headquarters for one of the National Cancer Institute's largest research collaboratives, SWOG, in addition to offering the latest treatments and technologies as well as hundreds of research studies and clinical trials.
