The 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. This system allows multiple FISH probes to be hybridised on the same slide in a spatially separated manner.
The Multiprobe AML/MDS Panel (RUO) has been designed to detect up to eight different FISH probes on a single slide in a single hybridisation experiment. The assay is supplied in a kit format of 2, 5, 10 or 20 devices and includes hybridisation solution, DAPI counterstain, template slides, a hybridisation chamber and full instructions for use. The kit even contains a unique liquid crystal display slide surface thermometer for accurate temperature measurement of the denaturation surface.
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.
