Microarray Options

LABASSURE’s comprehensive Chromosomal Microarray Analysis (CMA) services includes testing and clinical interpretation services, which enables clinicans to make better diagnosis and treatment decisions. Using the latest cytogenetics solutions from Affymetrix®, LABASSURE makes diganostic decisions simple, effective and insightful.

We offer a choice of microarray chips to suit various diagnostic needs and budgets.
