Haematology FISH probes

Oxford Gene Technology (OGT) has announced a significant expansion of its existing catalogue of Cytocell Aquarius Haematology probes for fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH). These additions have been introduced due to an ongoing commitment to use customer input as a major driver for the rapid development of the latest research-relevant probes. The 14 newly launched probes are:

* CBFB Proximal Probe Red

* CBFB Distal Probe Green

* MECOM Probe Red

* RUNX1 Probe Green

* NUP98 Proximal Probe Red

* NUP98 Distal Probe Green

* TET2 Probe Red

* USP46 (4q12) Probe Green

* CSF1R/RPS14 (5q32-q33) Probe Red

* EGR1/CDC25C (5q31) Probe Green

* TERT (5p15.33) Probe Aqua

* CUX1 (7q22) Probe Green

* EZH2 (7q36) Probe Red

* Chromosome 7 Alpha Satellite Probe Aqua.

The new cost-effective and quality-assured probes are optimised for use on common sample types and are sold as pre-mixed, easy-to-use formulations to minimise experimental errors. The importance of researchers’ input in today’s announcement demonstrates the ongoing success of OGT’s myProbes® service, which enables scientists to order custom-made probes for virtually any sequence in the human genome. All probes are produced under GMP/GLP guidelines using the Cytocell BAC-2-FISH process, combining high-intensity signals with low levels of background fluorescence and providing maximum confidence in results.
