Overnight; see Note 2). As described in Chapter 2, several cultures should be set up if there is sufficient material is available, because the cell cycle time is unpredictably affected by the disease. For this description of technique, it will be assumed that the supplied sample had enough cells for four cultures: 24-h, overnight colcemid, FdUr-blocked (1), and a PHA-stimulated culture to check the constitutional karyotype in case it becomes necessary to do so. In the author’s laboratory, it is also customary to set up a further culture, if there is sufficient material, blocked with excess thymidine as described in Chapter 9, and to have two cultures blocked with FdUr that are released at different times.

If possible, check a slide from each case before staining other slides, as the banding will vary according to the length of the chromosomes. 12. Leave the slides to dry overnight if possible before screening and analyzing the metaphases. Immersion oil and soft mounting medium tend to mix and produce a sticky compound that adheres to the microscope objective lens and makes it impossible to focus properly.

3. Generally just two slides are spread for each culture. Each slide should be labeled with the date, the patient’s ID, the type of culture, and a serial number.
