Cytogenetics/FISH

Section Director: Athena Milatovich Cherry, Ph.D.
Operations Director: Cynthia Samson, MA, MT(ASCP) SH, CL

General Information
The Stanford Cytogenetics Laboratory is a full-service cytogenetics laboratory. Standard chromosomal (or cytogenetic) analyses are performed on all tissue types, including:

  • Amniotic fluid, chorionic villi sampling (CVS) and percutaneous umbilical blood sampling (PUBS) for prenatal diagnosis;
  • Bone marrow aspirates on patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other hematological disorders;
  • Peripheral blood samples in couples with multiple miscarriages;
  • Peripheral blood samples of children with multiple congenital anomalies and mental retardation;
  • Tumor samples of solid neoplasms and tissue (products of conception, fetal skin samples, etc.);
  • Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for:
    • Microdeletion syndromes
    • Identification of marker chromosomes
    • Leukemia/lymphoma-specific rearrangements
    • HER2 amplification in breast cancer
    • Screening for recurrent bladder cancer (UroVysion)
    • Subtelomeric repeat studies for cryptic translocations
