Chromosome Control Probes
Control probes are designed to hybridize near the centromeric region of a chromosome. Control probes are useful for both chromosome enumeration and verifying that gene-specific probes have hybridized to the correct chromosome. Control probes come labeled in green by default, but can be customized to meet your needs. Kits come in sets of 10 and normally ship within 1-3 weeks. When ordered with a gene specific probe or BAC library probe, control probes are packaged separately, but can be mixed upon request. Probes are FISH confirmed on normal peripheral blood in both interphase nuclei and metaphase spreads. These products are for research use only (RUO) and are not for use in diagnostic procedures.
