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. Mouse karyotyping can be complicated due to the relative difficulty of mouse chromosome identification by laboratories that are not accustomed to mouse chromosome banding techniques. Mouse FISH probes allow for the visualization of chromosomal abnormalities under a fluorescence microscope without expert knowledge of the mouse karyotype.

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.
