Chromosome Painting

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

We offer both the Star*FISH© paint system (highly chromosome-specific, providing robust and even coverage of individual chromosomes) and also a very wide range of chromosome painting probes supplied by Cytotest.

Star*FISH Pan-centromeric, telomeric, and chromosome-specific centromeric paints are available labelled with FITC or biotin. The latter allows use of any fluorochrome coupled to streptavidin. Star*FISH paints are available in concentrated form for performing multiple staining experiments. This prevents the possible reduction of signal encountered when multiple paints are applied to the same slide. These probes are supplied with separate hybridisation buffer to allow optimisation of each experiment.

The Cytotest range includes probes for whole chromosomes, chromosome arms and terminal bands, sub-telomeric probes, chromosome counting probes, locus probes and oncology probes.
