To my knowledge noone has ever succeeded in automating
this test although many have tried.

You probably need to seek an outstanding pathologist
to glean a good interp. for your mom.

The Genetics and IVF Institute in Fairfax, VA (near you),
MCV, Eastern Virginia School of Medicine in Norfolk, and
Hopkins in Baltimore all have excellent departments for
this purpose.

Avail yourself of their services with dispatch.
