Improving hybridisation signal by removing cytoplasm

Postby jamesthe3 » Fri Oct 29, 2010 2:54 am

Hello everybody over the years we have had persistent & frustrating problems with cytoplasm and its affect on hybridisation FISH probes. Its become clear to me that pre-treatment to remove cytoplasm from samples is key to enable efficient and successful hybridisation of the probe to the target DNA. Excess cytoplasm can result in samples requiring a longer hybridisation time or complete failure of the probe to hibridise to the chromosomal DNA. We recently purchased a product called Procell Cytoclear and have discovered that it greatly improves preparations and FISH studies by removing cytoplasm around the targest cell.
Hope it helps u as much as it did for us!

first of all, no need to spam twice. Second, you apparently like many products from your company, don't you?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
