Colorado Genetics Lab
 

Culture and Freeze


Colorado Genetics Laboratory can cryopreserve samples for future analysis and studies. Samples are held for two years.  If needed, a sample can be held longer at the physician's request.

When testing on cryopreserved cells is desired, CGL will thaw and regrow the cells.  Cultured cells can then be sent to a reference lab for molecular or biochemical testing.  All paperwork for the referral lab is required, including an Information for Referral Specimens form.

Please contact CGL for more information.
