Abstract Early identification of microbial pathogens is essential for rational and conservative antibiotic use especially in the case of known regional resistance patterns. Here, we describe fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) as one of the rapid methods for easy identification of microbial pathogens, and its advantages and disadvantages for the diagnosis of pathogens in human infections in the laboratory diagnostic routine. Binding of short fluorescence-labeled DNA or nucleic acid… Expand
Fluorescence in situ hybridization, a complementary molecular tool for the clinical diagnosis of infectious diseases by intracellular and fastidious bacteria
TLDR
FISH techniques were applied in cases of blood-culture-negative endocarditis, respiratory infections, gastrointestinal diseases, mycobacterial infections, highly pathogenic microorganisms and other fastidious bacteria such as spirochetes. Expand
An Introduction to Fluorescence in situ Hybridization in Microorganisms.
TLDR
This work reviews the major steps involved in a standard FISH protocol, namely, fixation/permeabilization, hybridization, washing, and visualization/detection, and identifies the major variables/parameters. Expand
Quality Control in Diagnostic Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) in Microbiology.
TLDR
For the first time, quality control requirements for microbiological diagnostic FISH applications are defined and discussed and their impact and possible future developments of the FISH technique for infection diagnostics are discussed. Expand

TLDR
An important cytogenetic technique - fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) - which is used for obtaining spatial genomic and transcriptomic information is reviewed, which is widely utilized in genomic and cell biological research and for diagnostic applications in preventive and reproductive medicine, and oncology. Expand
NOTIFy (non-toxic lyophilized field)-FISH for the identification of biological agents by Fluorescence in situ Hybridization
TLDR
A set of FISH-probes for the fast, matrix independent and simultaneous detection of thirteen highly pathogenic bacteria in different environmental and clinical sample matrices is developed and it is shown that by the use of non-toxic lyophilized field (NOTIFy)-FISH, specific detection of microorganisms with simple and easily transportable equipment is possible in the field. Expand
Fluorescence in situ hybridization for identification and visualization of microorganisms in infected heart valve tissue as addition to standard diagnostic tests improves diagnosis of endocarditis.
TLDR
FISH/PCR was used to identify microorganisms in cases in which standard diagnostic tests failed to provide sufficient results for various reasons, and enabled us to identify bacterial biofilms and to differentiate between active versus degraded bacteria, thus indicating the impact of treatment. Expand
Evaluation of FISH for Blood Cultures under Diagnostic Real-Life Conditions
TLDR
If sophisticated rapid diagnostic methods like mass spectrometry from blood culture materials are not available, FISH provides an option for rapid differentiation for laboratories in resource-limited settings. Expand
Development of Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization as a Rapid, Accurate Method for Detecting Coliforms in Water Samples
TLDR
FISH could be used as a rapid, accurate biosensor system for simultaneously detecting four types of coliform bacteria to ensure water safety, and had the shortest detection time and highest accuracy for the identification ofcoliform bacteria in simulated water and domestic wastewater samples. Expand
FISH and chips: a review of microfluidic platforms for FISH analysis
TLDR
A review of the wide variety of approaches for lab-on-chip-based FISH that have been demonstrated at proof-of-concept stage, ranging from FISH analysis of immobilized cell layers, and cells trapped in arrays, to FISH on tissue slices. Expand
Optimizing peptide nucleic acid probes for hybridization-based detection and identification of bacterial pathogens.
TLDR
In bulk fluid assays, the dsPNAs had an overall higher fluorescent signal and better sensitivity and specificity than the PNA beacons for pathogen detection, and to confirm that the advantage translated to other assay types, an expanded panel of dsPNA probes were designed and tested. Expand

Evaluation of fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) for the detection of fungi directly from blood cultures and cerebrospinal fluid from patients with suspected invasive mycoses
TLDR
FISH is a valuable tool for the identification of invasive mycoses that can be implemented in the diagnostic routine of hospital laboratories, and is demonstrated to be slightly better than that of conventional microscopy under the experimental conditions. Expand
Faster Identification of Pathogens in Positive Blood Cultures by Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization in Routine Practice
TLDR
FISH allows rapid and reliable identification of the majority of microorganisms in growth-positive blood cultures and may allow same-day adjustment of antimicrobial therapy, and FISH is especially useful if no provisional identification is obtained. Expand
Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization Allows Rapid Identification of Microorganisms in Blood Cultures
TLDR
FISH is an appropriate method for identification of pathogens grown in blood cultures from septicemic patients by rapidly detected and identified in positive blood culture bottles without cultivation and biotyping. Expand
Rapid Diagnosis of Bacterial Meningitis by Real-Time PCR and Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization
TLDR
PCR is a highly sensitive tool for rapid diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and FISH is less sensitive but is useful for the identification of CSF samples showing bacteria in the Gram stain. Expand
Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization Method Using a Peptide Nucleic Acid Probe for Identification of Salmonella spp. in a Broad Spectrum of Samples
TLDR
The PNA-FISH method was optimized, and laboratory testing on representative strains from the Salmonella genus subspecies and several related bacterial species confirmed the predicted theoretical values of specificity and sensitivity, and the probe was able to discriminate the bacterium in a mixed microbial population in feces and water.

Fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) accelerates identification of Gram-positive cocci in positive blood cultures.
TLDR
A comprehensive panel of oligonucleotide probes for fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) targeting Gram-positive cocci was compiled and evaluated and allowed rapid and reliable molecular identification of Gram- positive cocci in blood culture specimens. Expand
