New Products: SciGene's CytoBrite Slide Oven

Premium

SciGene this week launched its CytoBrite Slide Oven, a 60-slide convection incubator for performing extended or overnight fluorescence in situ hybridization probe hybridizations.

The CytoBrite Slide Oven has five pull-out drawers that each receive two 6-slide removable trays from the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company's CytoBrite Slide Incubation System or CytoBrite Duo System. Slides are uniformly heated without humidification with the use of its CytoBond Removable Coverslip Sealant, SciGene said.
