Satellite Enumeration Probes

Cytocell's Satellite Enumeration probes are chromosome specific sequences generated from highly repeated human satellite DNA located in the centromeric, pericentromeric or heterochromatic regions of each chromosome.

These probes allow rapid identification and enumeration of human chromosomes in interphase and metaphase cells of postnatal samples. Cytocell offers a complete range of satellite probes available in the Aquarius® liquid format. The probes are available independently and directly labelled in either red or green. They are produced in a concentrated form to allow the mixing, if required, of up to 3 satellite probes in the same hybridisation.

The kits are supplied in an economical 5 test format and come complete with hybridisation solution and DAPI counterstain.


This product is intended to be used on Carnoy’s solution (3:1 methanol/acetic acid) fixed peripheral blood samples.
