Women with recurrent spontaneous abortions are referred, along with their spouses, for genetic counseling and further studies. Approximately half of these abortions have cytogenetic abnormalities yet traditional cytogenetic preparations of products of conception have >20% failure rate. The chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA), a DNA-based analysis, rarely has assay failures and is more sensitive in the detection of abnormalities. This makes chromosomal microarray testing an excellent tool in the study of Products of Conception (POC).

2 x 3 mm fresh (unfixed) tissue
Tissue sample minimum 2x3 mm in culture medium with antibiotics or in
a sterile container with Hanks', Ringer's or saline solution.
Refrigerated (DO NOT FREEZE).
Specimen viability decreases during transit. Send specimen to testing
lab for viability determination. Do not reject.
Setup Schedule
