Test Details


This test will detect chromosomal imbalance 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. It will also allow the detection of complete or partial molar pregnancies.


This SNP assay does not detect balanced rearrangements, low-level mosaicism (<10%), marker chromosomes that only contain heterochromatin or tetraploidy. Genotypes in some formalin-fixed tissues are unable to be determined, allowing only genomic dosage to be determined.

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 Oncoscan® FFPE platform, which uses more than 220,000 SNP probes with a median spacing of 5.0kb, within the majority of genes.
