MicroFISH is a simple system for performing cellular FISH panels, comprised of SciGene multiwell slides and equipment, that uses only 1µl of probe and sample per well.
Saves up to $400 probe cost per test
Potentially saves $1M or more per year
Processes up to 8 probes per slide
Reduces technician time > 75%
Removes coverslips automatically
Washes and dries slides automatically
Produces consistent, high quality results
Drop 1 µl of fixed cells, pretreat/age, and add 1 µl probe in up to 8 wells. Place one 22x50 mm coverslip without sealant over all wells. Denature with CytoBrite System. Hybridize batches overnight with CytoBrite Slide Oven. Automatically remove coverslips and wash/dry slides with the Little Dipper Processor. Apply DAPI and coverslip to visualize.
Incorporating the Scorpion from Art Robbins Instruments for cell dropping and probe dispensing makes further gains in technologist time, repetitive motion and reproducibility/traceability.
