WG analyses specific genes using different techniques depending on the particular needs of each disease.
The cytogenetic analysis by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) allow the detection of anomalies in specific zones of a gene. FISH is a fast technique which makes possible the evaluation of the interesting areas of the gene in an objective and safe way thanks to the fluorescence probes. It is one of the most common methods for breast cancer situations.
The inmunohistochemistry (ICH) tests use antibodies for the detection of specific markers involved in the development of the cancerous process. These antibodies are bound to an enzyme or a fluorescent molecule, which react with the marker and yield a coloured product or a fluorescent signal, helping with the detection of variations in specific genes.
