Autism Biomedical Testing

"What biomedical testing does Cortica provide?"

There are a wide range of medical tests that can be helpful for guiding treatment. We may order some or all of the following tests, depending on the child’s symptoms and diagnoses:

  • Chromosomal microarray analysis

  • Whole exome sequencing

  • Gene sequencing panels for neurodevelopmental disorders, epilepsy, mitochondrial disorders, and others

  • Single nucleotide polymorphism testing (including MTHFR)

  • Metabolic tests (including mitochondrial testing)

  • Comprehensive stool analysis

  • Food sensitivity testing

  • Cerebral folate antibody testing

  • Pharmacogenomic testing

  • Electroencephalography

  • MRI

Of these tests, electroencephalography (EEG) is one that we perform at our center. The others will be ordered by our team and performed at other laboratories and clinics in the area.
