Molecular diagnostics - FISH

Molecular Diagnostics is situated over two floors, 4th Floor Paediatric Histology and 5th Floor Research. This service offers Fluorescent In Situ Hybridisation (FISH) for soft tissue tumours and neuroblastomas (turn around time of 3-4 days) involving approximately 30 probes. The department utilises a Leica DM2500 Fluorescent Microscope and image capture system and is enrolled in UKNEQAS for Cytogenomics (CEQAS) quality assurance scheme. Any clinician wishing to request FISH should discuss this with the reporting Pathologist. It is not appropriate to contact the laboratory directly to request FISH.
