The Chromoprobe Multiprobe® System is an extension of Cytocell’s proprietary Chromoprobe® technology whereby DNA FISH probes are reversibly bound to the surface of a glass device. The probes attached to the glass device dissolve back into solution once in c2ontact with hybridization buffer, whilst denaturation of the probes and target DNA occurs simultaneously under the device once heated. This approach both simplifies the whole FISH procedure and renders it safer and quicker to use. This system allows multiple FISH probes to be hybridized on the same slide in a spatially separated manner allowing rapid screening of a patient sample for a number of DNA sequences in a single FISH analysis.
myProbes® is a custom design and manufacture service that provides unique fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) probes using the BAC-2-FISH™ process. This process utilizes Cytocell’s proprietary BAC clone collection containing >220,000 clones to produce fully quality-assured custom FISH probes for virtually any sequence in the entire human genome. Based on your specific interests and research, custom FISH probes may range from a simple catalog probe modification to a truly unique product.
