FISH & Cytogenetics

The FISH & Cytogenetics Laboratory performs DNA-based assays utilizing Fluorescence-In-Situ-Hybridization (FISH) technique. FISH uses fluorescent probes that bind to only those parts of the chromosome with which they show a high degree of sequence similarity. It offers a comprehensive array of tests for specific malignancies (Leukemia, DNA aberrations for breast, solid tumors and bladder cancer).

The laboratory also offers Chromosome Analysis for cancers and constitutional abnormalities. New probes are continually being added to our existing array of tests. As many of these FISH tests are specific, it is important to check in advance with the laboratory on probe availability. Our facility is equipped with the most advanced, sophisticated technology and equipment available; analyses are performed with the aid of dedicated workstations and an automated imaging system. The relevance of this system is that it drastically reduces the turn-around-time for results. We take pride in our unparalleled customer support and focus on patient care. Patients benefit directly from this superior technology by receiving more accurate tests at a very affordable price and a fast turn-around-time.
