Some selected chromosomal abnormalities need to be diagnosed in a rapid manner. Quantitative fluorescent polymerase chain reaction (QF-PCR) is one such breakthrough fully automated technique that provides rapid diagnoses of select chromosomal anomalies by eliminating the need to culture fetal cells.
