FISH (Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization)
The CellWriter™ Workstation from BioDot delivers precision and consistency while transforming the throughput that can be achieved in an individual lab. By combining our expertise in high throughput automation with our new patented FISHArray™ technology (allowing multiple cytogenetic assays to be performed on a single slide), the genetic information we seek is now easy to obtain.
Streamline. CellWriter leverages BioDot’s nanoliter dispensing technology to miniaturize the FISH assay so now up to 8 individual assays can be performed on a single slide – dramatically reducing the number of slides that need to be processed and analyzed.
Automate. CellWriter automatically normalizes cell concentration, drops cells to slides for FISH or G-banding, dispenses probe and DAPI counterstain, and performs hybridization.
Integrate. The sample, probes, lot information, hybridization statistics and more can now be assigned to a barcode on the slide and easily accessed at any point in the workflow.
Perform 4 times as many assays. 4 times faster. Everyday.
Features and Benefits
- Automated Cell Dropping & Normalization
- Automated Probe/DAPI Dispensing
- Integrated Hybridization
- Improve Metaphase Spread Quality
- Perform Up To 8 Assays On One Slide
- Reduce Reagent Costs
- Remove The Need For Rubber Cement
Say Goodbye to Rubber Cement…
The architecture of our CellWriter Slide™ removes the need to apply rubber cement coverlips to slides prior to the hybridization process (sorry Emler’s). Glue application and removal is both messy and time consuming. CellWriter and our FISHArray technology alleviate this step, allowing technicians to focus their time on the more technically challenging aspects of the workflow.
