Karyotype Plus

At Marylebone Diagnostic Centre, we are pleased to offer Karyotype Plus testing, an advanced genetic screening service that provides comprehensive analysis of chromosomal composition along with additional genetic markers for a more detailed assessment of genetic health. Karyotype Plus combines traditional karyotyping with supplemental genetic testing to offer enhanced diagnostic capabilities and personalized insights.

Key Features

Karyotype Plus includes the standard karyotyping procedure, which evaluates the number, size, and structure of chromosomes in a cell sample. This provides a foundational assessment of chromosomal abnormalities such as aneuploidies and structural rearrangements.

In addition to traditional karyotyping, Karyotype Plus incorporates supplementary genetic markers, such as fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) or chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA), to detect specific genetic abnormalities associated with certain conditions.

By integrating supplemental genetic markers, Karyotype Plus expands the diagnostic capabilities of traditional karyotyping, allowing for the detection of smaller chromosomal abnormalities, submicroscopic deletions or duplications, and specific genetic mutations.

Karyotype Plus is utilized in various clinical scenarios, including prenatal diagnosis for fetal chromosomal abnormalities, postnatal evaluation of developmental disorders or intellectual disabilities, and oncology for the characterization of chromosomal changes in cancer cells.

Karyotype Plus testing combines traditional karyotyping with supplemental genetic markers to provide enhanced diagnostic capabilities for the detection of chromosomal abnormalities and genetic conditions.

Karyotype Plus testing involves collecting a cell sample (e.g., blood, amniotic fluid), performing standard karyotyping to analyze chromosomal composition, and incorporating supplemental genetic testing methods such as FISH or CMA to detect additional genetic abnormalities.

Karyotype Plus testing may be recommended for individuals with suspected chromosomal abnormalities, developmental disorders, infertility issues, recurrent pregnancy loss, or a family history of genetic conditions, especially when standard karyotyping alone may not provide sufficient diagnostic information.

The turnaround time for Karyotype Plus test results can vary depending on the specific laboratory and testing protocol. Results are typically available within a few weeks of sample submission.
