Genetic Testing: From chromosomes to DNA, a revolution in prenatal diagnosis

Abstract

C hromosomal aberrations in the foetus have been detected for more than 30 years now by karyotyping cells from chorionic villi or from amniotic fluid. This is an elaborate and time-consuming process, requiring highly skilled technicians. The vast majority of aberrations detected are numerical, loss or excess of entire chromosomes.
