Mouse FISH Probes
New applications for mouse molecular cytogenetics are becoming apparent and are used to develop model systems for studies in the fields of genetics, mutagenesis, developmental cancer biology and also as human surrogates for studying the effects of genotoxic agents. FISH mapping in mouse is complicated by the relative difficulty of mouse chromosome identification (karyotyping) by laboratories that are not accustomed to mouse chromosome banding techniques. Fluorescent karyotyping can be made easier by the use of counterstains or multiple reference probes but each approach needs specialized equipment and experience.
Mouse probes are designed using the RP23 or RP24 libraries and are available in any of our 5 standard colors and are made to order. Mouse probes are not FISH tested before release and are subject to availability.
