Cytocell’s Whole Chromosome Painting Probes consist of libraries of DNA sequences derived from flow-sorted chromosomes. These libraries contain sequences stretching over the entire length of the chromosome and provide superior coverage of each human chromosome.

Applications include analysis of chromosome partners involved in translocations; identification of the chromosome of origin of marker chromosomes; confirmation of results obtained from M-FISH and SKY testing and may be of particular interest to those studying mutagenesis of human chromosomes as a result of exposure to genotoxic agents.

Cytocell offers chromosome painting probes in the Aquarius® liquid format and on a Chromoprobe Multiprobe® device, where FISH probes covering 24 chromosomes are reversibly bound to one 8 square device.
