Test Details

Synonyms

  • Leukemia FISH
  • Lymphoma FISH

Use

Confirmation/identification of cancer-related alterations (associated with myxoid liposarcomas/round liposarcomas)

Methodology

Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)

Additional Information

The CHOP break-apart FISH probe is designed to rule out a rearrangement of the gene located at 12q13 associated with a reciprocal (12;16)(q13;p11) translocation (CHOP-TLS gene fusion) and myxoid/round cell liposarcoma. CHOP is fused to TLS in about 90% of myxoid liposarcomas/round cell liposarcomas.
