Spectral Karyotype

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 08 May 2022

Spectral karyotype is a karyotype in which the homologous pairs of chromosomes are adjusted in such a way that they have distinct colors. A karyotype is basically a photograph of chromosomes that allow scientists and medical doctors to analyze the chromosomes of a private patient or an individual microorganism. The technology of SKY is that it offers each chromosome a different shade, to make sure that it's very easy to identify which is Chromosome 1 and which is Chromosome 18, so it's a lot easier for clinicians and researchers to identify problems of the chromosomes.
