Also known as: DNA microarray, DNA microarray-based diagnostics, microarray-based gene expression testing, gene expression profiling.
A DNA microarray is a blood that looks for missing or extra pieces of an individual DNA. It can be useful for identifying genetic causes of disease and developmental delays.
A routine blood draw is required in order to begin the microarray-based testing. The blood sample is then taken to a laboratory for testing and analysis.
No special preparation is needed for the test.
Infection, bleeding and damage to surrounding organs and tissues are potential risks of any blood draw.
