 [u´ploi-de]
the state of being euploid.

eu·ploi·dy

(yū-ploy'dē),
The state of a cell containing whole haploid sets.
[eu- + G. -ploos, -fold]

euploidy

[yo̅o̅′ploidē]
the state or condition of having a variation in chromosome number that is an exact multiple of the characteristic haploid number. Compare aneuploidy.

euploidy

Genetics The presence, in a particular organism of a normal complement of chromosomes which, in humans, is 2n, where n is the haploid number

euploidy

the condition of a cell, tissue or organism that has one or more multiples of a chromosome set, for example, a TRIPLOID (3n). Euploids with more than two sets of chromosomes are POLYPLOIDS.

Detection of an euploidy in chromosomes X, Y, 13, 18 and 21 by QF-PCR in 662 selected pregnancies at risk.
Overall euploidy (n=37) and aneuploidy (n=34) were assigned with 100% consistency.
Next, they found that such "hit-and-run" application of the gene significantly increased the proportion of cells with a normal number of chromosomes - also known as euploidy - in a population of mouse embryonic stem cells with mostly abnormal numbers of chromosomes - also known as aneuploidy.
The accuracy of the test is largely dependent on 2 factors: the variability (SD) of the percentage of reads mapped to the chromosome of interest among euploidy samples and the absolute difference between the sample being tested and the mean of the euploidy samples.
