Moleculer Cytogenetics (FISH)

Test Highlights

  • Accurate and sensitive detection of aneuploidy
  • FISH on blood for Down, Turner, Edward syndromes
  • FISH on prenatal samples to rule out common aneuploidies
  • FISH on POC (fetal skin, placenta, abortus) to rule out aneuploidy in pregnancy loss
  • FISH on sperm for aneuploidy risk
  • High-end Fluorescent microscopy and automated image analysis system
  • Adherence to strict ISCN standards and nomenclature
  • Results delivered in shortest turnaround time
  • Physicians are called to discuss all abnormal reports

Reproductive Conditions

Prenatal FISH for Aneuploidy

  • High Risk Screening Results for Aneuploidies
  • Fetal Anomalies in Ultrasound like High NT, Absence of Nasal bone etc
  • Quick Aneuploidy on Pregnancy loss tissue (abortus tissue)
  • Infertility in Men due to sperm defects

Sperm Aneuploidy

  • Men with normal semen parameters but with h/o recurrent pregnancy loss
  • Men with normal semen parameters, undergoing IVF
  • Men with normal semen parameters but experiencing recurrent implantation failure after IVF

Growth & Development Conditions

  • Turner Syndrome
  • Down Syndrome
  • Patau Syndrome
  • Edward Syndrome
  • Pallister Killan Syndrome
  • Trisomy 16
  • Partial aneuploidies
  • Micro Deletions and Micro duplication Syndromes (See section Cyto MicroArray)
