Methodology: Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH)

Clinical Significance: Aids in diagnosis of hematologic disorders and for monitoring disease after treatment or bone marrow transplant.

Testing Site: Testing will be sent to an approved reference laboratory.

Days Performed: Mon-Sat.

Turnaround Time: Routine: 3 - 5 days.

Specimen Requirements

Specimen: Blood or bone marrow

Collection Instructions: Blood or bone marrow must be received and processed by WSLH within 24 hours of collection. Specimen must be received in UWHC Core Laboratory (B4/220) on Monday-Friday only.

Collection Container: Preferred: Green top (with sodium heparin anticoagulant)

Collection Volume: Preferred: 2-3 mL blood or 0.5-1.0 mL bone marrow

Sample Analyzed: Whole Blood or Bone Marrow

Specimen Transport: Transport specimen at room temperature to UWHC Core Laboratory (B4/220). Transport with coolant pack during hot weather (>85F).

Unacceptable Criteria: Bone marrow/blood that is clotted or has been frozen.

Stability: Ambient: 24 hours
Refrigerated: Not acceptable
Frozen: Not acceptable


Interpretation provided with results.

Test Limitations:

Failure to identify an abnormal clone by FISH does not rule out the presence of other abnormalities in the specimen.


Additional Information:

If FISH assay is not performed in conjunction with chromosome analysis there is an additional charge for processing the specimen.
