IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Chromosome Anomaly, Trisomy 9, Congenital
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended for use in identifying the inborn (i.e., congenital) presence of three copies of chromosome 9 in a patient sample, rather than the normal two (i.e., trisomy 9). Trisomy 9 is associated with eye anomalies (e.g., anophthalmia, microphthalmia), congenital heart disease, kidney anomalies, and growth and developmental disorders. Many individuals with trisomy 9 are mosaic, a condition in which normal and three-chromosome cells are present in the same person.
