Automated Karyotyping

The karyotyping facility was set up to carry out genetic diagnosis at the chromosomal level for conditions like recurrent miscarriages, male and female infertility, mental retardation, and other miscellaneous syndromic and non syndromic cases. The lab is equipped with advanced karyotyping equipment and software.

While GTG banding is the routinely practiced technique, we also use advanced techniques like Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH), performed using different probes like Whole Chromosome Paints (WCP), Locus Specific Identifier (LSI), and Multicolour Fluorescence probes (M-FISH), to detect genetic defects at the chromosomal level.
