Chromosome Analysis

PRENATAL DIAGNOSIS OF THALASSEMIA AND SICKLE CELL ANEMIA

It is a method by which the baby in the mother's womb can be diagnosed whether it is suffering from thalessemia major or with sickle cell disease. Tissue sampling is done by chronic villi biopsy ( 8 - 10 weeks ) or by amniocentesis ( 11-14 weeks ).As it represents the baby in-utero the analysis of the tissue helps to diagnose the baby. The diagnosis is done by DNA PCR method .It is most sophisticated method in the world and gives appropriate results in 98-99 % cases.

BANERJI ANEMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION

Its main activity is to diagnose anemia in females of reproductive age group from macro to molecular (DNA ) level hence a proper reason can be found out and the female can be treated specifically.

CHROMOSOMAL ANALYSIS (KARYOTYPING )

In cases of repeated abortions both the partners blood is checked for any chromosomal defects by growing their blood cells artificially .

In cases of earlier birth of Down syndrome (kind of disease with mental retardation )baby ,further birth of similar baby can be prevented by analyzing the chromosomes of the earlier baby their parents and if required of baby inside the uterus.

FISH (fluorescent in-situ hybridization )

It is to be incorporated very soon .It will give the diagnosis of various genetic disorders in few hours (compared to days in chromosomal analysis and DNA diagnosis )

The center treats various hormonal diseased of the adolescents regularly like increased hair growth at unwanted places ,irregular periods, obesity etc.

The center is equipped with all kind of state of the art equipments for DNA based pathology like for hepatitis, AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis etc.
