Fluorescence in situ hybridization has become an essential detection assay in today´s routine diagnostics. However, long hybridization times of many hours to overnight are still a restrictive factor. We have refined the production process of our FISH probes to reduce background and artefacts and to improve the signal to noise ratio, particularly in short-time hybridization. Since mid-2015, one hour hybridization on lymphocytes is an integral part of quality control for all XCyting locus-specific probes at our manufacturing facility.

Genetic aberrations present in multiple myeloma cells play a significant role in the risk stratification and therapeutic approach in multiple myeloma patients. Chromosomal translocations affecting the IGH locus are recurrent in many types of leukemias and lymphomas. The malignant transformation works via the juxtaposition of oncogenes next to regulatory sequences of the immunoglobulin locus.
The t(14;16) is found in 5-7 % of all MM cases. The presence of t(14;16) has been associated with more aggressive disease and shorter survival among patients treated with either conventional or high-dose chemotherapy.
