An automated rapid diagnostic tool for detection of trisomy disorders

QF-PCR Overview

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. QF-PCR test on total cellular DNA is used as a secondary test for confirming conditions of chromosomal trisomy, submicroscopic deletions and duplications in the chromosome.
