Focus and methods



  • Classic cytogenetics: Karyotype analysis/chromosome analysis based on short or long term cultures to determine trisomies, monosomies, deletions, duplications, inversions and translocations
  • Fish-Diagnostics: Evaluation: 200-1000 interphasic nuclei per DNA-probe and interphasic-FISH-analysis ("rapid test")
  • DNA-Array (CGH): Sub-microscopic chromosomes aberrations

Molecular Genetics

  • PCR-procedure: Melting curve analyses, TaqMan, quantitative RT-PCR, real time PCR
