GLIOMA FISH PANEL
This FISH test uses the LSI 1p36 / LSI 1q25 & LSI 19q13 / LSI 19p13 dual colour probe sets to detect chromosomal deletions involving the 1p36 and 19q13 regions.
Freshly-cut tissue sections.
The FISH test is optimal with freshly-cut tissue samples. Tissue sections should preferably be between 4 - 6mm in thickness on coated/positively-charged slides. The optimal fixation time in formalin should be between 6 - 72 hours. An accompanying Hematoxylin and Eosin (H&E) stained slide with the tumour region marked out by a pathologist should be submitted together with at least 6 unstained sections.
Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization using direct-labelled FISH DNA probes are hybridized to target loci and analysed under fluorescence microscopy.
Findings are reported in accordance to the International System for Human Cytogenomic Nomenclature (ISCN, 2016).
