Genetic Probes are used for detection of chromosomal anomalies at prenatal, postnatal and preimplantation stage. These probes enable rapid, sensitive and specific dection, identification & characterization of chromosome anomalies.
Genetic probes are used to test metaphase chromosomes from cultured samples and interphase cells that cannot be cultured.
Since Genetic probes availabe from Vysis FISH are direct-labeled probes, they have less background signal, reduced costs with labeling reagents and reduced technician time.
Genetic Probes from Abbott Molecular encompass the following Vysis FISH Probes:
- Chromosome Enumeration Probes
- Microdeletioin Probes
- Preimplantation probes
- Telomere Probes
