  Working Principles
Click to ViewChromosome analysis or karyotyping is a test that evaluates the number and structure of chromosomes. Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) is a molecular cytogenetic technique that uses fluorescent probes that bind to only those parts of the chromosome with a high degree of sequence complementarity and is used to detect and localize the presence or absence of specific DNA sequences on chromosomes.
