Pediatric chromosomal analysis

The path to better health starts with early answers

Genetic testing provides answers

Determine whether a child’s developmental challenges are due to a condition caused by a chromosome abnormality. 

What can Chromosomal microarray analysis for pediatric developmental disorders detect?

  • Size and gene content of copy number variations (CNVs)
  • Regions of homozygosity, which may suggest shared ancestry and an increased risk for autosomal recessive disorders
  • Uniparental disomy, which can indicate an imprinting disorder

When should I order pediatric microarray testing ?

The American College of Medical Genetics, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Neurology recommend chromosomal microarray testing for individuals with one or more of the following:

  • Developmental delays or intellectual disability
  • Congenital anomalies
  • Dysmorphic features
  • Autism and autism spectrum disorders
  • Other potential disorders such as seizures and ADHD

Why is pediatric microarray testing preferred to a karyotype test?

  • Recommended by the American College of Medical Genetics as a first-tier test in lieu of high-resolution karyotyping
  • Doubles the detection rate of chromosomal disorders compared to high-resolution karyotyping and subtelomere FISH combined
  • Higher resolution than karyotyping
  • More comprehensive than karyotyping, which helps prevent unnecessary testing

Why to chose G-Life test?

  • Reliable results, fast technology:
    • provides genome-wide coverage of copy number gains and losses at a much higher resolution than conventional karyotyping
    • evaluates >1.7 million SNP markers with a mean probe spacing of 1.8 kilobases
    • reports copy number changes involving ≥16 probes and regions of homozygosity ≥5 megabases
    • delivers results in 10 to 12 days, on average


A simple cheek swab is designed for gentle and simple non-invasive sample collection.


Kit, shipping and consultation after receiving of the results are included in the price.

  • Your child’s result may help their healthcare provider order additional tests or identify new treatments for your child.
  • A definitive diagnosis may qualify your child for assistive services such as physical therapy or speech therapy at school.
  • Your child’s result may also help their healthcare provider decide if you, or other family members, could benefit from additional genetic testing and counseling as certain chromosomal conditions are inherited.
  • Microarray analysis can help you find answers by determining if your child’s medical challenges are due to a condition caused by a chromosomal abnormality.
