Karyotype is number of chromosomes and its appearance in the nucleus of a eukaryotic cell3. And the study of karyotype is called Karyotyping or chromosomal analysis. It provides insight to the genes in order to detect any genetic and chromosomal problems. A small sample of individual’s cells is sufficient to rule out root cause of genetic disorder. In this, chromosomes of an organism are paired and ordered by using standardised staining procedure, enables to analyze its characteristics and structural features2. It reveals chromosomal deletions, translocations, duplication and inversions2. Karyotyping in the present scenario indeed act as a boon and ensure wellbeing of foetus.
