Chromosome Analysis, Blood with Reflex to Postnatal, ClariSure® Oligo-SNP Array

Test code(s) 18980

No. Please call Quest Genomics Client Services at 866-GENE-INFO to discuss this case with a genetic counselor. Documentation of the specific genetic abnormality in the family will be necessary to determine the accuracy of the testing that was performed on your patient.

No. Please call Quest Genomics Client Services at 866-GENE-INFO to discuss this case with a genetic counselor. Documentation of the specific genomic alteration in the family will be necessary to determine the accuracy of the testing that was performed on your patient.

Yes. Within a certain time period, microarray can be performed on the same sample. Please contact Quest Genomics Client Services at 866-GENE-INFO as soon as possible to speak to a genetic counselor about performing the microarray on this specimen.

Chromosome analysis can rule out:

  • Trisomies such as Down syndrome (trisomy 21), trisomy 18, trisomy 13
  • Sex chromosome abnormalities such as Turner and Klinefelter syndromes
  • Most rearrangements, including Robertsonian translocations, reciprocal translocations, and inversions
  • Marker chromosomes
  • Mosaicism above 14% (95% confidence interval)
  • Oligo-SNP microarray can detect:
  • Small deletions/duplications throughout the genome that are within the resolution of the assay. For more information, please call Quest Genomics Client Services at 866-GENE-INFO to speak with a genetic counselor.
  • Segments of homozygosity that may be representative of a risk for a recessive Mendelian disorder

This assay cannot detect:

  • Mosaicism below 14% (at a 95% confidence level)
  • Fragile X syndrome
  • Single gene disorders such as cystic fibrosis, Marfan syndrome, neurofibromatosis, etc.
  • Small deletions/duplications smaller than the resolution of this assay. For more information, please call Quest Genomics Client Services at 866-GENE-INFO to speak with a genetic counselor.
  • Small segments of homozygosity that are smaller than the threshold set by the lab (approximately 10 Mb)
