Methodology: Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH)
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.
In-Lab Turnaround Time: 3 - 5 days.
Specimen: Blood or bone marrow
Collection Container: Green top (with sodium heparin anticoagulant)
Blood or bone marrow must be received and processed by WSLH within 24 hours of collection. Specimen must be received in UWHC Hospital Laboratory Monday-Friday only.
Collection Volume: 2-3 mL blood or 0.5-1.0 mL bone marrow
Sample Analyzed: Whole Blood or Bone Marrow
Transport specimen at room temperature to UWHC Hospital Laboratory. Transport with coolant pack during hot weather (>85°F).
Bone marrow/blood that is clotted or has been frozen.
Interpretation provided with results.
Failure to identify an abnormal clone by FISH does not rule out the presence of other abnormalities in the specimen.
If FISH assay is not performed in conjunction with chromosome analysis there is an additional charge for processing the specimen.
