The Tumor Cytogenetics Laboratory conducts the following types of tests, including chromosome analysis and FISH assays (using over 100 FISH probes).
- Cell Culture
This process involves the controlled growing of cells in the laboratory.
- Routine G-banded chromosome analysis
These analyses are done using samples such as bone marrow, unstimulated peripheral blood, tumors, and other tissues.
- Interphase and metaphase FISH studies
These studies use chromosome enumeration probes, single copy or locus specific probes, translocation probes, and multi-color FISH probes.
