New technique isolates placental cells for non-invasive genetic testing
A simple method for isolating placental cells from cervical swabs has been developed by Brown University researchers. The technique, described in the journal Scientific Reports, could aid in developing less invasive ways of diagnosing genetic disorders in developing fetuses, without using needles to harvest cells from the placenta.

The technique isolates trophoblast cells -placental cells that carry the complete fetal genome- by taking advantage of their tendency to settle to the bottom of microwell plates. The researchers lay out a procedure for optimally isolating the cells, enabling them to be picked individually from the plate.
