The procedure consists in the extraction of a small quantity of amniotic liquid from the amniotic sack. This liquid is the one where the fetus floats and which contains fetal cells which, after being extracted by amniocentesis, are subsequently analysed in a laboratory in order to detect genetic abnormalities.
