Karyotyping Reflex Fish Test – 13, 18, 21, X, Y Amniotic Fluid

51+ booked in last 3 days


Examining chromosomes by karyotyping method in the amniotic fluid, especially chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X, and Y, can help detect congenital abnormalities and identify genetic disorders. FISH (Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization) is conducted when G-banding (karyotyping) analysis fails. This diagnostic test is recommended when there is a need for further investigation into chromosomal abnormalities in prenatal cases. To ensure accurate analysis, the sample submission should include a comprehensive clinical history, including the anomaly scan report. Additionally, a consent form duly signed as per the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) guidelines must be provided. By combining karyotyping and FISH analysis, healthcare professionals can obtain detailed genetic information, enabling them to identify potential chromosomal anomalies and provide appropriate guidance and support to expectant parents.

This test is recommended when • Abnormalities are detected during ultrasound or other prenatal screenings. • There is a family history of genetic disorders. • There are risk factors for chromosomal abnormalities. • The pregnant person is older than 35.

Abnormal results may indicate the presence of chromosomal abnormalities or genetic conditions. However, further confirmatory tests are required for a definitive diagnosis.

• You will need to provide a sample of amniotic fluid, which is collected through a procedure called amniocentesis, guided by ultrasound. • The sample is then sent to the laboratory for cell culture and chromosome analysis.

Before the test: • You may need to sign a consent form as per PCPNDT guidelines. • You should submit a detailed clinical history and anomaly scan report. • Follow your doctor's instructions regarding fasting or medication restrictions prior to the procedure. • Wear comfortable clothing and plan for some rest after the test. Please reach out to your healthcare provider for any specific requirements.

Other tests that may be ordered alongside this test include: • Detailed ultrasound examination • Cell-free DNA screening • Genetic counselling

Genetic disorders can result from structural or numerical abnormalities in chromosomes, affecting various aspects of development and health. Down syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21. It leads to intellectual disabilities and physical features like a flat face and upward-slanting eyes.
