Services - Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH)

FISH is carried out by request only and is used for:

  • Unequivocal identification of chromosomes involved in autosomal or sex chromosome aneuploidies;
  • Refinement of the analysis of complex chromosomal rearrangements (translocations, inversions, deletions);
  • Gene mapping.

Specific details and cost of FISH experiments depend on the species, availability of hybridization probes and the aim of the experiment. Therefore, the prospective customers are advised to contact us beforehand to discuss the details.

Approximate cost for one FISH experiment (including the probe, labeling, detection and image analysis) is $300.
