Karyotype is a test to identify and evaluate the size, shape, and number of chromosomes in a sample of body cells. Extra or missing chromosomes, or abnormal positions of chromosome pieces, can cause problems with a person's growth, development, and body functions.
The duration of the study depends on the in vitro cultivation of the cells and therefore can not be determined with precision. The average time to get results is about 45-60 days, but the analysis may last longer. It is not appropriate to plan medical examinations, procedures, etc. regarding the result of the test before it is completed.
