Karyotype analysis (RHG, ~350 bands) from at least 16 metaphases derived from two independent cultures in order to ensure maximum reliability of test results.
The test includes:
- Aneuploidy PCR (QF-PCR), for the rapid detection of aneuploidy for chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X and Y
- detection of the CFTR gene F508del* mutation of cystic fibrosis, as well as
- measurement of α-FP levels in the amniotic fluid
