Multislide system for chorionic villi samples with “direct preparation”

QuickChrome will increase the yield of analyzable metaphases and, in addition, will drastically reduce the time and the work-load.

Quickchrome is an instrument that optimizes the quality of chromosome preparations, obtained from cytotrophoblastic cells of chorionic villi samples (CVS) processed by “direct technique” (either immediately after the sampling or after 24-48 hours of incubation at 37°C), through the
homogeneous dispensation of the sample on the slides. The “direct technique” (and especially the laying of cells suspended in acetic acid solution) is a procedure that, if done manually, has several drawbacks:
• an excessive number of metaphases with random loss of chromosomes
• low quality of banding, often making diffi cult/impossible the chromosome analysis
• too high and uncontrolled variability of results.
The operator can set the best parameters, in terms of temperature and speed of the plate, fi nding the most convenient condition for the evaporation of the aqueous acetic acid; this, in turn, will produce the ideal chromosome spreading.
