Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH), Oncology
Confirmation/identification of leukemia/lymphoma-related alterations; leukemia/lymphoma monitoring of residual disease, transplants, and indolent clones (see list or call lab for probe availability).
Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)
Fixed-cell pellet from a cytogenetic analysis, slides with metaphases and/or interphase nuclei, or bone marrow touch prep slides. Blood, bone marrow, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), FNA are also acceptable.
Fixed-cell pellet, three slides, 10 mL blood (adult), 5 mL blood (pediatric), or 3 mL bone marrow
Fixed-cell pellet from a cytogenetic analysis, two slides, 5 mL blood (adult), 1 mL blood (pediatric), or 1 mL bone marrow
Transport to the testing lab at room temperature; use a cool pack or LabCorp transport kit. Do not allow the sample to freeze.
Maintain specimen at room temperature.
Causes for Rejection
Broken or dirty slides; excessive cellular debris or stained slides; frozen specimen
Call for additional probes not listed above. Pertinent clinical diagnosis, previous cytogenetic studies, and probe of interest should be included with the specimen (Call for a list of available probes or see online list.).
This test number is used for tracking oncology FISH specimens to the laboratory. Bill codes will be added when testing is complete, based on the processes performed in the laboratory.
Please provide targeted FISH probe and diagnosis. This test is essentially a tracking code, and the test will only be performed after the probes and diagnosis is provided. Absence of this information will delay turnaround time.
