HANABI P6 Metaphase Spreader

The HANABI P6 Metaphase Spreader offers the best control to spread cell suspensions to make the chromosome metaphase specimen slides that are used to analyze chromosomes using FISH, CGH, and G-banding. The specimen slides of various cells can be made by adjusting spreading conditions.

SKU: HCMS-99-0001

The HANABI P6 Metaphase Spreader has been designed to provide optimized environmental conditions for metaphase chromosome spread preparations. Temperature, humidity and airflow are set and rapidly stabilized so 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, giving rise to better yields of analysable metaphases. The chromosome spreading process for conventional G-banding (or equivalent) and FISH analysis of samples derived from blood cells or bone marrow samples, is now more streamlined and can easily be carried out regardless of skill level. Protocols requiring cells and chromosomes that are spread on the entire slide can be achieved using the tilted slide.
