New, Better Test for CVS & Amnio Samples

If you're planning to do a CVS or amniocentesis, you should ask your doctor to have your sample analyzed with this new test as well - the new Chromosomal Microarray Analysis (CMA). Just this one test can identify over a hundred abnormalities simultaneously, and is superior to older technology used to evaluate chromosomal disorders.

You don't have to do anything extra during your CVS or amnio, all you have to do is have your doctor send part of the sample afterward to Baylor's Medical Genetics Lab, the institution who is currently offering the test. As long as you've got a sample, you might as well run the test and be sure your baby doesn't have any other disorders you might not have known to test for!
