Spectral karyotyping (SKY) which allows the simultaneous visualization of all human chromosomes in different colors, is a powerful tool to identify subtle chromosomal rearrangements, marker chromosomes and complex karyotypes.  The detection of these chromosomal aberrations is of great importance for precise diagnosis, risk assessment and genetic counseling either in clinical cytogenetics or in cancer analysis.

The Spectral Karyotyping probes are designed to enable the simultaneous visualization of all chromosomes in different colors. The distinction between the dyes can be performed only with the Hyper Spectral System from Applied Spectral Imaging.
