Abstract
Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) is an excellent method for detection of gene copy number alterations in cancer and other diseases. A limitation of the technology is the tedious, inaccurate and often highly subjective spot counting. For a number of reasons, automation of FISH spot, counting has not been accomplished. FISH signals are often at different focal planes, resulting in interfering out-of- focus light. This paper describes current progress towards automated FISH spot counting, with particular reference to the previous technical limitations.
