Rapid Aneuploidy Detection of Chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X and Y Using Quantitative Fluorescent Polymerase Chain Reaction with Few Microdissected Fetal Cells.


OBJECTIVES Analysis of DNA from small numbers of cells, such as fetal cells in maternal blood, is a major limiting factor for their use in clinical applications. Traditional methods of single-cells whole genome amplification (SCs-WGA) and accurate analysis have been challenging to date. Our purpose was to assess the feasibility of using a few fetal cells to… (More)
