The HANABI-PV Metaphase Auto-Spreader Mini and the HANABI-PVI Metaphase Spreader are instruments that provide optimized environmental conditions for the preparation of metaphase chromosome spreads.
Chromosome spreading with the HANABI-PV Metaphase Auto-Spreader Mini and the HANABI-PVI Metaphase Spreader provide optimized environmental conditions for the preparation of metaphase chromosome spreads.
The HANABI-PV automatically processes up to 10 samples and prepares up to 20 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.
The chromosome spreading process for conventional FISH, CGH and G-banding analysis of samples cultured and harvested from blood, bone marrow and similar fluids is now streamlined and is easily carried out, regardless of skill level.
ADS Biotec offers two spreader platforms to meet the requirements of small- to large-sample throughput laboratories:
