SciGene Automates Chromosome and MicroFISH Slide Preparation
Visit booth 614 to see the Scorpion Slide Preparation Robot for automated preparation of 24 chromosome slides for banding or 12 MicroFISH slides for hybridization. It precisely dispenses microliters of fixed cells for G-banding in a humidity-controlled chamber for optimal chromosome spreading. It also dispenses fixed cells and probes for FISH; ready for coverslipping and hybridization. Patient information may be entered by barcode scanning or manually. The robot monitors probe tube volumes and produces score sheets for slide readers.
