Hi everyone,

  I am working in a brand new cytogenetics lab, and we have some questions about controls for Her2.  Does your lab use a control for each run, and if so, what does your control contain? Have you ever used a Her2 positive cell line as a control?  Finally, during our validations for FISH, is it enough to get the same result as Clarient or do we need to verify with another method? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
