Where some genetic testing companies require patients to go elsewhere for diagnostic testing, Labcorp offers continuity of care When you and your patient need diagnostic testing, either for routine prenatal diagnosis, confirmation of NIPS (NIPT) results, pregnancy loss, follow-up of a high-risk pregnancy, or diagnostic testing of a fetus or neonate when an inherited genetic disorder is suspected, we can help.
With a wide range of diagnostic tests—including chromosome analysis, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), or SNP microarray on multiple sample types including, amniotic fluid, chorionic villi, POC samples, blood, and buccal samples—we deliver insights for every stage: fetal, pediatric, and adult.
Labcorp offers a portfolio of tests to help with differential diagnosis of pregnancy loss and recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). Differentiating sporadic miscarriages from RPL can be difficult. However, there is guidance from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) on suspected causes, clinical evaluation and patient management. For more information on our comprehensive offering, read the full Recurrent Pregnancy Loss educational newsletter or click the links below.
Detects chromosomal imbalances related to fetal loss. Can be performed directly on POC tissue without having to grow cells, optimizing success rate and turnaround time.
Ability to analyze formalin fixed paraffin-embedded samples enabling a provider to order a SNP microarray on a patient’s previous pregnancy loss
Indications for cytogenetic analysis on blood include: infertility and multiple pregnancy loss; and family history of chromosome abnormality, ultrasound abnormalities or family history of chromosome abnormality.
These tests and profiles cover the most commonly ordered laboratory tests assessing the inherited and acquired risks of thrombosis potentially associated with thrombophilia in pregnant women with and without a history of previous thrombosis.
