Chromosomal abnormalities causing genomic imbalance are a major cause of congenital developmental defects and intellectual disability, constituting the leading cause of stillbirth and birth with malformations.

The ability to detect fetal chromosomal aberrations is crucial, so that parents and the medical team can discuss different options; therefore, obtaining timely results represents a key variable for appropriate management, and available time is very limited in most instances.

Herein, we demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining rapid and unbiased karyotype information by using Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequencing technology (ONT) starting from CVS samples.
