The red component of the EVI1 probe mix consists of a 158kb probe telomeric to the D3S4415 marker and includes the LRRC34 gene. The green component covers a 181kb region that includes the centromeric part of the EVI1 (MECOM) gene and beyond marker D3S1282. The blue component covers a 563kb region centromeric to the EVI1 gene, that includes the D3S1614 marker.
We have successfully used CytoCell haematology probes over the last 5 years and were looking for the same quality and consistency for our FISH pathology screening. OGT worked closely with us to help our lab evaluate – and later validate – CytoCell pathology probes. CytoCell is now our primary FISH probe supplier. Results have been excellent and we were able to consolidate our workflow to follow a single, streamlined protocol.
