Agilent Introduces IQFISH FFPE Buffer
Product News Nov 15, 2013
Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the IQFISH FFPE Hybridization buffer, which enables one-hour hybridization for FISH processing on formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue samples.
The IQ technology, originally developed by Dako, was previously available only to anatomic pathology labs. Now, with the IQFISH FFPE Hybridization buffer offered as a standalone product, cytogenetic labs have access to the IQ technology and much faster results.
"The IQFISH FFPE Hybridization Buffer will revolutionize FISH processing time on FFPE samples," said Jacob Thaysen, vice president and general manager for Agilent's Diagnostics and Genomics business.
Thaysen continued, "By reducing the hybridization processing step from the industry standard of two days to just one hour, our customers can get their results faster and without compromising signal strength."
