For In Vitro Diagnostic Use
CytoScan® Dx Assay is a qualitative assay intended for the postnatal detection of chromosomal copy number variants (CNV) in genomic DNA (gDNA) obtained from peripheral whole blood in patients referred for chromosomal testing based on clinical presentation. CytoScan Dx Assay is indicated for the detection of CNVs associated with developmental delay and/or intellectual disability (DD/ID), congenital anomalies, and/or dysmorphic features. Assay results are intended to be used in conjunction with other clinical and diagnostic findings, consistent with professional standards of practice including confirmation by alternative methods, parental evaluation, clinical genetic evaluation, and counseling as appropriate. Interpretation of assay results is intended to be performed only by healthcare professionals board certified in clinical cytogenetics or molecular genetics. The assay is intended to be used on the GeneChip® System 3000Dx and analyzed by Chromosome Analysis Suite Dx Software (ChAS Dx Software).
This device is not intended to be used for standalone diagnostic purposes, pre-implantation or prenatal testing or screening, population screening, or for the detection of, or screening for, acquired or somatic genetic aberrations.
