Our Story


After decades in the cytogenetics and IT industries, Allie and Gary Johns set out to create a better solution for laboratories to meet their demands. Focused on high-quality cytogenetic technologists, top-notch analyses, and industry-leading turnaround times (TAT), the pair developed a flexible lab testing solution built in a virtual environment. They developed an efficient process that emulates an extension of your staff and follows your specifications. Best of all, their unique process is typically more cost-effective than hiring a staff member of your own.
