Cytogenetic & Karyotyping
It is the study of genetic phenomena in which the emphasis is given on chromosomal structure, location, and function of cells. Again, it involves studying number of chromosomes and appearance, i.e. karyotyping. Cytogenetic is a significant tool used for diagnosing genetic disorders and if applied in right perspective could yield in possible suitable treatment.
Similarly, for the disease acute myeloid leukemia, cytogenetic analysis is carried out for diagnosing, classifying and prognosising. The sole purpose of this discipline is to study the disease due to structural abnormalities of chromosomes for which G-band karyotyping is the standard used in this regard. Thus, this study is widely used in patient-management, where the cinilican comes to know the specific type of treatment to be administered.
Additionally, cytogenetics plays a decisive role in clinical management of lymphomas, tumors, and leukemia. This speaks a lot about its significance in human medicine. Consult our scientist to get cytogenetic services in the following areas:
