Chromosome analysis, High resolution, does not rule out cryptic or submicroscopic chromosome abberations. These aberrations are a common cause of developmental delay, intellectual disability, multiple congenital abnormalities and autism spectrum disorders. Reflex testing to test code 16478-Genomic Alterations, Postnatal, ClariSure(R) Oligo-SNP Array is the assay that will most extensively detect unbalanced submicroscopic genomic rearrangements.

10 mL sodium heparin (green-top) whole blood.

Whole blood 5-10 mL (5 mL minimum). Green vacutainer (sodium heparin
only). Ship at room temperature. Other vacutainer tubes containing
