SciGene has introduced the CytoBrite Duo Slide Incubation System, a dual temperature slide heating instrument for performing FISH hybridization protocols. It consists of two independently controlled heating blocks that each hold a 6-slide removable tray.
After assay assembly, a slide tray is simply moved from one lower temperature heating position to a higher temperature position to perform the brief probe co-denaturation step then returned to the lower temperature position for hybridization.
The snap heating and cooling of slides eliminates heat damage to cells for more reliable results. Slides are sealed with CytoBond Removable Coverslip Sealant eliminating the need for humidification.
