Advantages of Chromosomal Microarray Analysis (CMA)

  • Detection of a wide range of genetic abnormalities
  • Enhanced assessment of the size and content of the chromosomal imbalance
  • Reveals hidden genetic complexities that are not detected by standard karyotype analysis
  • Detection of microdeletion/duplication syndromes, subtelomeric deletions/duplications, and smaller copy number changes that are not detected by standard karyotype analysis
  • Accurate genotype-phenotype correlation
  • Can be used in prenatal diagnosis even in the absence of an index case.
  • Recommended by American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM)
