WHAT IS CHROMOSOME ANALYSIS TEST?

WHAT IS CHROMOSOME ANALYSIS TEST?

Chromosome analysis involves karyotyping human chromosomes from a culture of leukocytes from peripheral blood. Cell replication of the cultured leukocytes is chemically halted in metaphase, and microscopic photographs are taken of the chromosomes within the cell nucleus. The chromosome pictures are enlarged, and the chromosomes are paired, sorted, and studied for symmetry of pairs, number of chromosomes, identification of sex chromosomes, and staining patterns.
