HANABI-PV Metaphase Auto-Spreader Mini

The HANABI-PV Metaphase Auto-Spreader Mini allows for optimization of environmental conditions for the preparation of metaphase chromosome spreads.
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 (unique feature). The chromosome spreading process for conventional FISH, CGH and G-banding analysis of samples derived from blood cells or bone marrow samples is now more streamlined and consistent. Crossing of the chromosomes is minimal, and after automated spreading can be analysed on the completed slide. Protocols requiring that cells and chromosomes are spread on the entire slide can be achieved using an optional tilted slide block.

Product Description

ADS Biotec offers the most advanced and state-of -the-art technology in cytogenetics automation. The HANABI-PV Metaphase Auto-Spreader Mini is an automated instrument designed especially for small to mid-size labs – processing up to 10 samples or 20 slides per run.
The HANABI-PIV Metaphase Auto-Spreader Mini fits on a benchtop making ideal for small spaces.
