Interpretive Data

Compliance Statement C: For human genetic inheritable conditions and mutations. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions.

Counseling and informed consent are recommended for genetic testing. Consent forms are available online.

Maternal Cell Contamination: Maternal cell contamination studies recommended. For Array AND amniotic fluid chromosomes, also order Chromosome Analysis, Amniotic fluid (ARUP test code 2002293). For Array AND CVS chromosomes, also order Chromosome Analysis, Chorionic Villus (ARUP test code 2002291). For maternal cell contamination studies or if submitting maternal blood, order Microarray Genomic, Maternal Confirm (ARUP test code 2002369) accompanied by a test request form for the mother (this test is performed at no charge). For questions regarding ordering please contact ARUP's genetic counselor at (800) 242-2787 ext. 2141.

A processing fee will be charged if this procedure is canceled, at the client's request, after the test has been set up, or if the specimen integrity is inadequate to allow culture growth. The fee will vary based on specimen type.

Turnaround times may be delayed if specimens are suboptimal or culturing is required prior to testing.

This test must be ordered using Cytogenetic test request form 43098 or through your ARUP interface. Please submit the Patient History for Prenatal Cytogenetics form with the electronic packing list (
