Test Identifier Information

 
Registration CodeCTGN
Method

Fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) using locus-specific probes are applied for the identification and confirmation of  the microdeletion syndrome - Williams syndrome.

The test is useful when the diagnosis is firm and/or urgency is required. Otherwise, microarray testing which detects all currently known microdeletion syndromes in one assay, is the preferred test in most cases.
