Station 8: Computers/Microscopes

After the analysis is complete, a representative number of metaphases are captured using a digital imaging system. The digitized images are then able to be cut into individual chromosomes which are then arranged into a karyogram. The karyogram is a representation of a karyotype. The digital imaging system enhances this process and assists in producing quality images.
