What We Do

The HudsonAlpha Clinical Services Lab, LLC (CSL) provides testing for those who embark on a personal journey through genomics. The CSL is wholly owned by the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, a non-profit research institute committed to advancing genomic knowledge by bringing scientific discoveries into clinical care. The CSL team works to solve undiagnosed diseases and end diagnostic odysseys. Our goal is to provide support that goes beyond the genome, helping resolve uncertainty and seeking answers for symptoms that remain unexplained by DNA sequencing.
