5q- (5q31; 5q33) / TERT (5p15)Triple-Color probe hybridized to a normal metaphase (2R2G2B).
RUO - 5q- Triple-Color
The 5q- specific FISH probe is optimized to detect copy numbers at the CDC25C / EGR1 gene region at 5q31 and the CSF1R / RPS14 gene region at 5q33 simultaneously in a dual-color assay. The triple-color probe provides in addition to the two critical regions a control in blue targeting the TERT (previously known as hTERT) gene region at 5p15.
