Single Paint Probes
What is Chromosome Painting?
Chromosome painting refers to the hybridization of fluorescently labeled, chromosome-specific, composite probe pools to cytological preparations. Chromosome painting allows highly sensitive and specific visualization of individual chromosomes in metaphases and the identification of both numerical and structural chromosomal aberrations.
ASI offers a range of whole chromosome painting probes for human, mouse and rat chromosomes.
ASI’s Whole Chromosome Paint (WCP) probes are labeled with FITC, Rhodamine and Aqua. A combination of two or three colors can be visualized simultaneously. They are ready to use in hybridization solution and supplied in an economical 5 or 10 test format, or as a complete paintbox set. The painting probes are visible using single band pass filters or a standard triple DAPI/FITC/Texas Red filter. They have a guaranteed shelf life of 24 months.
Due to their excellent stability, they are shipped at room temperature and should be stored at -20°C/-4°F upon arrival. All ASI probes are manufactured under rigorous quality control and strict GMP standards.
What Colors Are Available?
All probes are available in red, green and aqua. Customized probes are also available.
