Fluorescent in situ hybridization technology uses fluorescent primer probes and detects deletions and duplications of DNA sequences on the chromosomes. The test can be done on non dividing interphase cells or on dividing cells. Slides of target DNA are hybridized with scientifically synthesized probes that are complementary to target DNA. The technique is used to quickly identify any extra or deleted chromosome (Aneuploidy) or to detect deletions and duplications of parts of chromosomes.
Our FISH lab uses the best hybridization technology available in the world today with probe design and automated fluorescent microscopy along with image analysis for accurate aneuploidy and micro deletion detection.
