One project highlighted by the Hematopathology subsection is validation of FISH assays. A manuscript is being prepared that provides guidelines for FISH testing for hematologic disorders. The paper outlines methods for validating probes, validating testing, results reading and interpretation. The focus of the manuscript is for pathologists without molecular/cytogenetic expertise who want to bring FISH assays into their laboratories.
