Detection by low-pass whole-genome sequencing with Ion Reporter Software
Preimplantation aneuploidy detection
Copy number variations (CNVs) represent a class of variation in which segments of the genome have been duplicated (gains) or deleted (losses). While research of smaller inherited de novo CNVs (up to ~10 Mb) have been associated with many disease conditions, including cancer and inherited genetic disorders, larger chromosomal imbalances from >10 Mb up to whole chromosomes are commonly associated with human reproductive viability. These large genomic imbalances can now be detected by Low-Pass Whole Genome Sequencing using Ion ReproSeq PGS kits and Ion Reporter Software using DNA from just a single cell.
Most normal human somatic cells contain a diploid (2N) set of autosomes (non-sex chromosomes) and a pair of sex chromosomes. Cells that do not contain an exact diploid set are called aneuploid (Figure 1). Common types of aneuploidy are monosomy (the loss of one chromosome) of the X chromosome in females—Turner syndrome (45, X)—and some trisomies, three copies of a given chromosome in a diploid cell. Other chromosome imbalances include trisomies of chromosomes 13 (Patau syndrome), 18 (Edwards syndrome), and 21 (Down syndrome), as with the presence of extra sex chromosomes, such as in Klinefelter syndrome (47, XXY) and Triplo-X syndrome (47, XXX).
Detect duplications or deletions of entire chromosomes within a day, using Ion Reporter Software, at significantly lower cost than karyotyping. Using Ion Reporter 5.4 or later, obtain enhanced interpretation of results including mosaicism detection, gender masking, and improved data plotting.
