The FGFR1 Breakapart/Amplification probe consists of a green 272kb probe and a red 267kb probe, which are positioned on each side of the FGFR1 gene. The 8-centromere probe in blue acts as a control for chromosome 8.
It was very important for us to have more consistent results with our probes — easy-to-read bright signals and a range of vial sizes, which is much more cost-effective. It also was critical to upgrade our pretreatment kit to expedite the analysis of FFPE samples. We can now complete the process in about 90 minutes.
