  • Fetal lymphocytes, trophoblasts, and nucleated red blood cells have each been separated from maternal blood by methods such as flow cytometry, magnetic cell sorting, and charge flow separation. The frequency of fetal cells among circulating maternal mononuclear cells remains to be ascertained. Current estimates range from about 10−5 to 10−7, but the numbers may be increased in women carrying aneuploid fetuses. Fetal cells separated from maternal blood have been studied by methods such as… CONTINUE READING
