Agilent In Situ Hybridization Probes
Agilent Technologies introduced a number of in situ hybridization probes, including the EBER RNA CISH, Kappa, and Lambda mRNA CISH probes for Dako Omnis. Additionally, a manual IQFISH panel for lymphoma was launched following its CE marking.
The EBER RNA CISH, Kappa, and Lambda mRNA CISH releases increase the diagnostic capabilities of the Dako Omnis instrument, which can now be used to simultaneously run tests involving CISH, FISH, and immunohistochemistry. Meanwhile, the IQFISH panel is a set of oligonucleotide-based FISH probes for detecting rearrangements involving the MYC, CBL2, BCL6, MALT1, CCND1, and IGH genes. The probes are for use on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections, Agilent said, adding they are available in break-apart and dual-fusion methodologies.
