Satellite Enumeration probes are chromosome specific sequences generated from highly repeated human satellite DNA located in the centromeric, pericentromeric or heterochromatic regions of each chromosome.
CytoCell offers a complete range of satellite probes available in liquid format. The probes are available independently and directly labeled in either red or green fluorophore (Texas Red® or FITC spectra respectively). The probes are supplied concentrated and packaged in an economical 15µl format.
Running our PETS protocol was taking upwards of 5 hours to complete based on the previous SOP. After the technical training visit from CytoCell, we were able to make some tweaks to reduce the protocol time down to just 1 hour and 15 minutes, with the same or better results.
