Supplied with DAPI counterstain and full instructions for use, Cytocell offers a comprehensive range of Murine Whole Chromosome Painting probes for the assessment of chromosome number, breakage or rearrangement.
Our Whole Chromosome Paints were initially developed from flow sorted Mus musculus chromosomes in the laboratory of Prof. Malcolm Ferguson-Smith, Cambridge University Department of Veterinary Medicine, UK.
With current advances in murine research, Cytocell has optimised each of the Murine Painting probes for use on Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) tissue and fixed cell suspensions. Having reviewed current laboratory practices, we are the only manufacturer to offer optional hybridisation times - 4 hours or overnight. The probes are available in either a red or a green fluorophore (Texas Red® or FITC spectra respectively) to enable multiple paints to be combined in a single reaction. They are provided ready-to-use in hybridisation solution and supplied with DAPI counterstain.The kits are available in an economical 5 or 10 test format.
