CE Marked

For In Vitro Diagnostic Use

The Vysis CEP 12 SpectrumOrange DNA Probe Kit is a SpectrumOrange labeled probe specific for the alpha satellite (centromeric) region of chromosome 12 (12p11.1-q11).

Intended Use

The CEP 12 SpectrumOrange DNA Probe Kit is intended to detect AT rich alpha satellite sequences in the centromere region of chromosome 12 in conjunction with routine diagnostic cytogenetic testing. It is indicated for use as an adjunct to standard cytogenetic analysis for identifying and enumerating chromosome 12 via fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) in interphase nuclei of cells obtained from peripheral blood lymphocytes in patients with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). It is not intended to be used as a stand alone assay for test reporting; FISH results are intended to be reported and interpreted only in conjunction with results of standard cytogenetic analysis, performed concurrently, using the same patient specimen. The CEP 12 assay has not been validated for purposes other than those described above. It is not intended for use with test matrices other than peripheral blood lymphocytes from subjects with CLL, to screen for chromosome 12 aneuploidy, eg, in asymptomatic individuals, or to monitor patients for residual disease.
