HANABI-PIV Metaphase Auto-Spreader

The HANABI-PIV reduces hands-on time of the entire spreading process allowing time for other specialized tasks, providing increased throughput for your laboratory.
Temperature, humidity and airflow are set and rapidly stabilize thus ensuring that when chromosomes are dropped and spread on microscope slides, they are dried in a consistent and reproducible manner. Excessive spreading and chromosome overlaps are minimized, facilitating better yields of metaphase analysis. The samples tubes and slides are tracked by bar codes. Crossing of the chromosomes is minimal, and after automated spreading can be analysed on the completed slide.
