A conventional diagnostic tool for the detection of chromosomal anomalies

Karyotyping Overview

While only a small percentage of couples suffer miscarriages due to underlying chromosomal issues, couple karyotyping is often recommended for couples who’ve had multiple miscarriages. Doctors routinely check for any change in chromosomal structure or an underlying chromosomal abnormality in both the parents through this test. The chromosomes are strained, isolated, and examined under a microscope by a trained cytogeneticist who looks for any missing or extra pieces of the chromosome or signs of chromosomal damage.
