Spectral karyotyping (SKY) is a novel cytogenetic technique, which has been developed to unambiguously display and identify all 24 human chromosomes at one time without previous knowledge of any abnormalities involved. SKY can discern aberrations that fail to be easily detected by conventional banding techniques and by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH). Therefore SKY is highly accurate, highly sensitive, and highly prognostic. In this report the featurese and application of SKY in studies of leukemia are reviewed.
