Room temperature or refrigerate if overnight
Turnaround time 14-21 days
Microscopy, karyotype analysis

Chromosome abnormalities are observed in ~60% of miscarriage specimens and 5 to 10% of stillborns. Analysis of these abnormalities can help determine the cause of the miscarriage and the probability of recurrence due to a chromosome abnormality.
