This karyogram depicts a complete complement of condensed human chromosomes that had been stained using quinacrine, thereby, revealing a fluorescent banding pattern upon each chromosome according to its genetic composition. By revealing these banding patterns using various stains, genetic aberrations can be exposed, aiding in the diagnosis of genetic-based disease processes, and the causes for congenital abnormalities.
