||Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is performed for aneuploidy of chromosomes X, Y, 13, 18, and 21.
The FISH analysis does not detect structural chromosome abnormalities, mosaicism, and other numerical chromosome abnormalities (excluding X, Y, 13, 18, and 21). In addition, false-positive or negative results, as well as maternal cell contamination, have been demonstrated in prenatal FISH analysis. The American College of Medical Genetics recommends that irreversible therapeutic action should not be initiated on the basis of FISH results alone.
A processing fee will be charged if this procedure is canceled at the client's request, after the test has been set up, or if the sample integrity is inadequate to allow culture growth.
