Why Perform Miscarriage Genetic Testing?

A miscarriage can be devastating. Parents are left to grieve and wonder why. Their pain and fear can make it more difficult to move ahead, and they want answers.

The results obtained from chromosome testing after a miscarriage can reduce a patient's emotional burden, and information from the results can improve the chances of a future successful pregnancy. If the genetic testing after a miscarriage reveals the cause of the loss is due to a chromosome abnormality in the fetus, parents can usually be reassured that the chance of recurrence is low, and avoid a costly medical work-up. It is for this reason that genetic testing on miscarriage tissue is performed.

What conditions can Anora detect?

  • Trisomy—extra or missing chromosomes (e.g., Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome), Trisomy 18 (Edward syndrome))
  • Triploidy—a complete extra set of chromosomes
  • Deletions and duplications—extra or missing pieces of a chromosome
  • Uniparental disomy (UPD)—two copies of a chromosome from the same parent with no copies from the other parent
