Authors' objectives:

The head of the histology-embryology-cytogenetics department of the Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital has asked CEDIT to carry out an evaluation of a spectral cytogenetic chromosome analyser (Spectracube SD 200).

Authors' results and conclusions: In the context of prenatal diagnosis, this instrument can be used to diagnose inherited diseases or the cytogenetics of acquired diseases, to identify virtually invisible abnormalities. It makes diagnosis or genetic counselling possible for antenatal or inherited diseases. Finally, further classifications of these diseases may emerge.
Authors' recommendations: The CEDIT considers that this technology constitutes a technological innovation and that it is important for Assistance Publique-Hopitaux de Paris to be involved in this advance.
