Conventional cytogentics analysis of solid tumours using cultured fresh tissue is no longer available through VCCS (26/6/13). Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) testing on paraffin embedded tissue sections has obviated the need for conventional cytogenetic analysis.
Specimens can be sent fresh or in formalin.
Specimen triage will be performed in Anatomical Pathology by an APS pathologist.
