BioGenex Integrated eFISHiency System

BioGenex has launched its integrated eFISHiency system. The system is a complete laboratory workflow solution that includes 65 highly specific FISH probes, FISH visualization kits for either FFPE or cell samples, validated FISH protocols, and FISH consumables. It is the world's first affordable FISH automation system that ifist on a bench top, the company said.  The probes are processed by a unique Repeat Subtraction Technique resulting in advanced specificity and improved signal intensity, the company said. The new and improved eFISH kits contain ready-to-use protease solutions (Liquid Pepsin) and improved pre-treatment (EZ-AR2) and post-hybridization stringency wash solutions.
