Chromosome Painting

Chromosome Painting: New! Cytotest Chromosome Probes

Cambio's Star*FISH paints are highly chromosome-specific and provide robust and even coverage of individual chromosomes, unlike paints based on cloned libraries. We also offer a very wide range of chromosome painting probes from Cytotest™ which whole chromosomes, chromosome arms and terminal bands, sub-telomeric probes, chromosome counting probes, locus probes and oncology probes

CytoTest Fluorophores

CytoTest FISH probes are manufactured with genomic DNA obtained either from microdissected human chromosomes or cloned DNA fragments, depending on the probe type. The probes are labeled with the following fluorophores. The maximum peaks of excitation and emission wavelength for each dye and for DAPI (Dihydrochloride 4',6’ -Diamidino - 2 - phenylindole) counterstain are listed below. For optimal results, microscope filter sets must be selected which are compatible with the fluorescence of the probes.
