FISH analysis for for neoplasms of solid tissue in Other solid tumours
FISH involves the application of fluorescent DNA probes specific to genes or genetic regions of interest that highlight abnormalities involving these regions.
FISH for the detection of genetic imbalances or rearrangements conferring prognostic value, often in relation to response to targeted therapy, is a key aspect of the management of an increasing number of tumours of solid tissue.
Recurrent changes in other malignancies involving gene dosage or gene rearrangement are available on request. Please contact the laboratory for more information.
