Clinical Excellence - Molecular Genetics


Welcome to the home page of the Exeter Molecular Genetics Laboratory based at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital in Exeter, UK.


The laboratory was set up in 1995 to provide a molecular genetic testing facility for the Royal Devon & Exeter Trust and the Peninsula clinical genetics service. It is a member of the SCOBEC network, working in collaboration with the regional molecular genetics laboratories in Salisbury, Cambridge, Oxford, Bristol and Cardiff to provide an efficient genetics laboratory service to approximately 25% of the combined population of England and Wales.  Specialist tests are available for individuals and their families throughout the UK as part of the UK Genetic Testing Network (UKGTN). A number of samples are also received from patients throughout the world.


The service has been accredited by CPA (UK) Ltd, and participates in external quality assessment schemes, UK NEQAS and EMQN external quality assessment schemes.


The laboratory is open from 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
