Genomic Unity® Constitutional Genome-Wide Copy Number Variant Analysis
Test Code – CP004
The Genomic Unity® Constitutional Genome-Wide Copy Number Variant Analysis is a whole genome sequence based test designed to identify chromosomal abnormalities that correlate with the patient’s clinical symptoms. The genetic changes identified in the test include copy number variants, duplications/deletions, regions of homozygosity, inversions, mobile element insertions, and aneuploidy.
Genomic Unity® Constitutional Genome-Wide Copy Number Variant Analysis is a comparable test to a chromosomal microarray (CMA). CMA has been recommended by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG), the Child Neurology Society (CNS), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the International Standard Cytogenomic Array (ISCA) Consortium.
When to order
Consider ordering Genomic Unity® Constitutional Genome-Wide Copy Number Variant Analysis when you would typically be ordering a CMA.
Such analyses are considered particularly beneficial for individuals with:
- Multiple congenital anomalies
- Global developmental delays/intellectual disability with or without dysmorphic features
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Suspected chromosomal imbalances
- Genome-wide copy number changes, deletions, duplications, inversions, regions of homozygosity, and mobile element insertion
