New Products: SciGene's CytoBrite Slide Incubation System

Premium

SciGene recently introduced its CytoBrite Slide Incubation System for performing fluorescence in situ hybridization and in situ hybridization protocols on between one and 12 slides using Peltier technology for rapid heating and cooling.

Sunnyvale, Calif.-based SciGene said that CytoBrite detects true slide conditions using the firm's SlideSense technology, and records times and temperatures to a USB file. Removable trays transfer slides during probe addition, cover slipping, and instrument loading to reduce handling, according to the firm. The system also uses SciGene's CytoBond Removable Coverslip Sealant to eliminate humidification requirements.
