Karyotyping Chromosome Analysis Used in Genetics Testing


Chromosome analysis, also called karyotyping, is a test done to examine the chromosomes in a cell sample. Examining  chromosomes in this manner helps identify any genetic causes of disease or disorder. Karyotype testing can be performed on cells or tissue such as: blood, bone marrow, amniotic fluid, and even placental tissues.

When examining the chromosomes, physical characteristics such as size, length, banding patterns, and centromere position are noted. A photograph is also taken of the arragnement of chromosomes. Some chromosomal abnormalities or issues can be identified through the number of chromosomes or their arrangement of the chromosomes.

Karyotyping is commonly performed on a child with developmental delays or other abnormal features, or on couples who have experienced multiple miscarriages, to determine if there is a genetic issue at play. Additionally, microarray testing and flourescent in situ hybridisation (FISH) testing may also be performed.
