Indications for Testing

Microarray (Pregnancy Loss)

Approximately 60% of early pregnancy losses are caused by a chromosome abnormality, and a genetic cause for a loss may be identified at any gestational age.1 For some patients, knowing the cause for a loss may provide comfort. For many, this test is a cost-efficient tool that provides answers, accurate recurrence risks for future pregnancies, and optimal obstetric management approaches following a miscarriage or stillbirth.
