Chromosome analysis helps in the diagnosis of a wide variety of congenital conditions. It helps in the identification of congenital chromosome abnormalities like Aneuploidy (Trisomy / Monosomy) & structural chromosome abnormalities. Lupus Anticoagulants are heterogenous IgG or IgM autoantibodies which interfere with phospholipid dependent in vitro coagulation tests, particularly Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT). These antibodies are associated with thrombosis (arterial & venous), recurrent abortions, neurological & neuropsychiatric disorders. Cardiolipin antibodies are useful in identifying patients with an increased risk of thrombosis, recurrent spontaneous abortions and phospholipid antibody syndrome. Anti Beta 2 Glycoprotein 1 (Beta 2GP1) antibodies are independent risk factor for thrombosis in autoimmune diseases and complications of pregnancy.

  • Test Type:
  • Pre-test Information:
    It is recommended that patient discontinues Heparin for 1 day and Oral Anticoagulants for 7 days prior to sampling as these drugs may affect test results. Discontinuation should be with prior consent from the treating Physician. Overnight fasting is preferred. Duly filled Chromosome and FISH Analysis Requisition Form (Form 17) and Coagulation Requisition Form (Form 15) is mandatory.
