Genetic Testing
With PanCyto testing we can detect aneuploidy as well as more subtle chromosomal rearrangements, deletions and duplications. This testing can offer diagnosis, information about prognosis and additional health risks, and information about recurrence risk.
Consider PanCyto testing for patients with:
  • Intellectual disability, developmental delays and/or autism
  • Dysmorphic features
  • Congenital anomalies (birth defects)
  • Recurrent spontaneous abortions (miscarriages)
  • Infertility
PanGenomics offers CytoOneArray in collaboration with Phalanx Biotech Group. This high density array with a very good detection rate has the following capabilities:
  • Detect copy number changes in prenatal and postnatal samples
  • Contains high-density probes that can detect chromosomal micro-deletions and micro-duplications
  • In addition to detecting aneuploidies (such as Down syndrome), it can simultaneously detect 372 genetic abnormalities (331 diseases and 41 sub-telomeric regions)
  • Unique emphasis on detecting etiology of developmental delay (DD) and intellectual disability (ID) (by excluding common CNVs in non-specific areas)

Indications for ordering the CytoOneArray
Pediatrics (Postnatal)
  • To determine molecular etiology when there is a Clinical
    diagnosis of developmental delay or mental retardation
  • Unexplained/unclassified genetic abnormalities
  • Family history of genetic diseases, chromosomal abnormalities
    or birth defects
Obstetrics (Prenatal)
  • Pregnant women over 35 years of age at delivery
  • Abnormal results from prenatal ultrasound
  • Family history of genetic diseases, chromosomal abnormalities or birth defects
  • Family history of congenital heart diseases or mental retardation
  • History of recurrent spontaneous miscarriages
