Karyotyping
Karyotyping is a detailed analysis of chromosomes to detect abnormalities of the number or structure of chromosomes. The chromosomes are obtained from peripheral blood samples after culture for 72 hours. The metaphases are fixed on slides, Geimsa banded, mapped and analyzed for abnormalities. We have the Zeiss/Metasystems automated karyotyping workstation where images of the metaphases are captured, processed and stored. Numerical and structural chromosome abnormalities like trisomies, deletions and translocations can be detected.
