Two dual labelled X and Y probe sets are available in the CytoCell® liquid range in a 10 test format. They may be used to identify X and Y human chromosomes in interphase and metaphase cells.
These probes are designed for use on cultured peripheral blood and bone marrow cells.
I first came across CytoCell FISH probes in a previous lab I worked in and I was struck by the quality of the products. Since this time, I have been recommending and introducing CytoCell probes across all application areas — now they are the primary FISH probes used in our lab. They have an excellent range of products and their ready-to-use reagent format saves considerable time.
