Chromosomal Microarray Analysis (CMA)

Chromosomal Microarray Analysis (CMA) has the highest diagnostic yield of any single clinically available test for children with global developmental delay, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorders, and multiple congenital anomalies and has been recommended by the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) and the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) as a first-line genetic test for individuals with these conditions. CMA can quickly provide a specific genetic diagnosis that can avoid extensive testing including: blood and urine tests, EEG, MRIs, lumbar punctures, and skin and muscle biopsies. Widespread coverage policy adoption by major insurance providers over the past year help make CMA a routine part of clinical practice.
