Here is some more information on genetic disorders or if your doctor has recommended genetic testing.
The cGH Array Test
One of the most common genetic tests ordered in children is called a cGH microarray. There are many other genetic tests available however – please check with your doctor which test has been recommended for you or your child.
This short guide is from the Victorian Clinical Genetics Service which offers saliva testing. Not all pathology centres will offer this, however the other information on cGH array applies to all providers.
