Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization

Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization

Optimize and monitor your FISH assay set up


Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization (FISH) is a technique that uses fluorescent probes that only bind to certain parts of the chromosome. Developed in the early 1980s by biomedical researchers, it is used to identify the presence or absence of DNA sequences on chromosomes. FISH can also be used to detect specific RNA targets (mRNA, lncRNA and miRNA) in circulating tumor cells and cell tissues.

This range includes the following 6 FISH targets available as both sections mounted on slides and whole FFPE blocks: MET, EML4-ALK, RET, ROS1, Lung Panel and HER2.
