Fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH)
Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) has been one of the standard methods in molecular pathology for many years. Fluorescence-labelled probes bind directly to complementary genomic target sequences within the tissue section (in situ), extraction and amplification of nucleic acids is not performed. FISH is a fast and inexpensive method that enables reliable analysis even on very small biopsies with only a few dozens of tumor cells. A fluorescence microscope is needed to evaluate FISH preparations.
Zytomed Systems´ ZytoPure® FISH probes are optimized for use with our ZytoPure® FISH Accessory Kit,
but can also be combined with reagents from other vendors. ZytoPure® FISH probes and reagents are not available in Germany.
ZytoPure® FISH Accessory Kits contain all reagents required for fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).
Nearly all reagents for FISH analysis are also available separately.
