Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization Services

Our Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization services (FISH) is a powerful cytogenetic technique used to detect and localize specific DNA sequences on chromosomes. By using fluorescently labeled probes that hybridize to complementary DNA strands, FISH allows researchers to visualize genetic material in cells, providing valuable insights into chromosomal abnormalities, gene mapping, and various genetic disorders.

Key Features and Benefits of FISH:

  • High Resolution and Specificity: FISH can precisely identify and localize specific DNA sequences within the genome, offering high resolution and specificity compared to other hybridization techniques.
  • Visualization of Genetic Material: The use of fluorescent probes enables the direct visualization of genetic material under a fluorescence microscope, allowing for the identification of structural and numerical chromosomal abnormalities.
  • Wide Range of Applications: FISH is utilized in various fields including research, prenatal diagnosis, genetic counseling, and gene mapping. It can detect deletions, duplications, translocations, and other chromosomal rearrangements.
  • Rapid and Efficient: FISH provides results more quickly than traditional karyotyping methods, making it a valuable tool for clinical diagnostics and research.
  • Versatility: Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization services can be applied to different types of samples such as cultured cells, tissue sections, and even interphase nuclei from non-dividing cells.
