Chromoprobe Multiprobe Chicken Brochure

The chicken genome consists of a large number of microchromosomes; therefore, analysis of the chicken genome by classical cytogenetics is extremely complex.

The Cytocell Chromoprobe Multiprobe® Chicken is designed to identify complex chromosome rearrangements present in the chicken karyotype (1-28, Z and W). The system utilises directly-labelled whole chromosome painting (WCP) probes and locus-specific subtelomere BAC probes that allow the visualisation of chromosomal rearrangements under the fluorescent microscope without expert knowledge of the chicken karyotype.
