  2. Resource Description
    "Specimen Requirements: 3-5 mL blood, GREEN top (sodium heparin) AND PURPLE top (EDTA) tube. For requisition slips Pediatric Specimen Requirements: Minimum draw for neonates is 1 mL blood, GREEN top (sodium heparin) tube and 2 mL blood, LAVENDER top tube. Comments: Microarray comparative genomic hybridization (array CGH, or aCGH) is a cutting-edge, revolutionary analytic tool to aid in the diagnosis of patients with developmental delay, mental retardation, autism and birth defects. Array CGH detects genomic imbalance, ie. gains and losses of genetic material. Contact us for a complete list of disorders detected. Also, please contact us to discuss the advantages and limitations of the test and whether it is appropriate for your needs. All abnormalities identified by aCGH are confirmed through fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis when possible. Analysis of parental blood may be required for interpretation, which will come at no charge. A comprehensive interpretation performed by a provider certified by the American Board of Medical Genetics (ABMG) in Clinical Cytogenetics and/or in Clinical Genetics is included, as well as any recommendations for genetic counseling."
