-What are the benefits of FISH?
The FISH test has many benefits. It reduces parental anxiety especially in prenatal diagnosis when the Triple test shows a high-risk pregnancy, as the FISH report is available much earlier than the karyotype. A large number of interphase nucleii can be studied to detect low-grade mosaicism. The test can also be carried out on a wide range of samples like chorionic villi, amniotic fluid, cord/adult blood, placental biopsy, products of conception, buccal smears, sperm and blastomeres for PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis). FISH has wide applications in the detection of microdeletions like Prader-Willi syndrome and in cancer.
