HANABI Automated Spreaders

The HANABI-PIV and PV Metaphase Auto-Spreaders are automated instruments that provide optimized environmental conditions for the preparation of metaphase chromosome spreads. The HANABI-PIV  automatically processes up to 48 samples and prepares up to 96 slides per run. Temperature, humidity and airflow are set and rapidly stabilize, thus ensuring that when samples are dropped and chromosomes spread on microscope slides, they are dried in a consistent and reproducible manner.   Excessive spreading and chromosome overlaps are minimized. The sample tubes and the slides are traceable by bar codes. After automated spreading , the spreads on the slides can be further treated and stained to be analyzed.
