  • Abbreviated Blood Chromosome Analysis
  • Microarray, Blood (Reveal®), SNP

Test Includes

DNA extraction; interpretation; limited five-cell high-resolution chromosome analysis (two analyses, one karyotype)

Special Instructions

A completed Clinical Questionnaire for SNP Microarray should accompany specimens. Call 800-345-4363 to request the appropriate form, or print/photocopy the form from the Genetics Appendix online.

This test may also be performed on adults. When a child tested with this assay is found to have an abnormal array of unknown clinical significance that may be clarified through parental testing, there will be no charge associated with the follow-up parental testing that is based on the child's results. All other parental follow-up testing will be charged, including (but not limited to) autism susceptibility regions, known microdeletions/microduplications, autosomal recessive deletions/duplications, and large copy-number changes possible and likely pathogenic significance. The child's abnormal array results will indicate whether parental testing will be performed at no charge and will include the appropriate parental follow-up test number. For parental follow-up testing for arrays not performed at LabCorp, call 800-345-4363 to speak to a genetic counselor.

Expected Turnaround Time

14 - 17 days

Test Details


This test will detect chromosomal imbalances that could be associated with developmental delay/congenital anomalies. It provides detection of possible uniparental disomy of any chromosome, the percent and location of homozygosity, including the degree of identity by descent.


This SNP assay does not detect balanced rearrangements, low-level mosaicism (<10%), marker chromosomes that only contain heterochromatin or tetraploidy.

This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by LabCorp. It has not been cleared or approved by the Food and Drug Administration.


SNP microarray analysis is performed using the Cytoscan® HD platform, which uses more than 743,000 SNP probes and 1,953,000 NPCN probes with a median spacing of 0.88 kb.
