Chromosomal Analysis/Karyotyping

Chromosomal disorders are relatively common and they result from the gain, loss, inversions or translocations of visible amounts of genetic material. Chromosomal defects are commonly detected in abortuses, congenital disorders, mental retardation, infertility and certain types of cancers. Numerical and many structural chromosomal defects can be identified by traditional karyotyping. Cytogenetic testing helps in diagnosis of a genetic conditions and exploring treatment options.

Chromosomes are evaluated mostly from cultured peripheral blood cells, but can be obtained from cord blood, bone marrow, products of conception, abortuse material, tumor tissue, chorionic villi and amniocytes.

Chromosome studies are an important laboratory procedure for the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with mental retardation, unexplained minor or major malformations, developmental delay, abnormalities of sexual development and abnormalities of growth, genetic syndromes, infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, bad obstetric history, prenatal diagnosis and cancer.

Cytogenetics is an important laboratory procedure for the diagnosis of individuals with advanced maternal age, miscarriage, stillbirths and perinatal deaths, abnormal ultrasound findings, abnormal maternal serum screening test, individuals with infertility or recurrent miscarriages, anomalies of sexual development, family history of a known or suspected chromosome abnormality & infertility.

Sample Type:Amniocentesis, CVS & POC.
