Karyotyping test in India can be performed on a sample of blood, bone marrow, amniotic fluid, or tissue from the placenta, the organ that develops during pregnancy to feed a growing baby. To test amniotic fluid, an amniocentesis is done. A bone marrow specimen requires a bone marrow biopsy. The sample is placed into a special dish and allowed to grow in the laboratory. Cells are later taken from the growing sample and stained. The laboratory specialist uses a microscope to examine the size, shape, and number of chromosomes in the cell sample.
The stained sample is photographed to provide a karyotype, which shows the arrangement of the chromosomes. Certain abnormalities can be identified through the number or arrangement of the chromosomes. Chromosomes contain thousands of genes that are stored in DNA, the basic genetic material.
The stained cells are evaluated and assessed under a microscope for abnormalities; abnormalities can consist of –
- Omitted or missing chromosome
- Additional chromosome
- If there is any missing portion of the chromosome
- If there is any extra portion of chromosome
The lab experts of We Care IVF Surrogacy examine the chromosome’ size, its shape and the number; this information is essential in evaluating any genetic abnormalities.
