The Swedish Repository of DBS samples collected on Guthrie 903 cards for neonatal screening of inborn diseases provided deidentified 3mm blood spot punches. There were total of eight (8) samples representing two (2) decades; 1970s: 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978; 1980s: 1980, 1982, 1984, 1986. gDNA was extracted and whole genome amplified prior to aCGH experiments using control female reference genomic DNA. The objective was to show that large rearrangements (e.g. loss of chrX in male samples) can be detected in WGA gDNA from blood spots >30 years old.
