CytoGenetix FISH reagents and kits
Genetix Group plc, a developer of technologies for automated, high-throughput cell identification, announces the introduction of CytoGenetix reagents for fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH). CytoGenetix reagents are designed for integration with Genetix' Applied Imaging CytoVision workstation, though the reagents are also highly effective and well-suited for use in any cytogenetic system. CytoGenetix reagents are available in two concentrations, premixed and concentrated. Premixed kits are ready to use and provide convenience for standard applications. Concentrated kits allow up to three paints to be used in combination with no loss of specificity or to perform ratio labeling. Competitor-free labeling helps control reagent costs and reduces the chance that excessive amounts of competitor DNA will reduce signal strength due to non-specific binding. The probes are available with three different labels, Cy3, FITC and Biotin. Cy3 and FITC provide bright, intense signals, low non-specific binding, high photo stability, high water solubility, and pH insensitivity. Biotin labeled probes allow the use of any streptavidin coupled fluorochromes.
