The XCyting DNA Probes of MetaSystems
Since 1986, the year of our incorporation, MetaSystems has been focused on developing and manufacturing some of the world’s finest microscope imaging systems for life sciences, and in particular, cytogenetics. In 1997, a strong demand for multicolor chromosome painting probe kits opened up the opportunity to enter the field of FISH reagents for the cytogenetic and hematology markets. Soon after having launched our mFISH probe, MetaSystems developed a novel technique for high resolution multicolor banding analysis for chromosomes, termed mBAND. Comprising a DNA probe kit, as well as dedicated analysis algorithms, the mBAND technique is protected by a series of international patents.
Today’s current FISH probe product offering is being continually expanded in response to the requests of our valued customers. Currently, we have a number of innovative probes in our development pipeline to meet our customer's expanding hematology and solid tumor probe requirements. We invite you to visit our website regularly to check for new products and other XCyting news. If you need a DNA probe that you find neither in the catalog nor on the website, please do not hesitate to contact us; it may well be that the particular probe you are seeking is already in development or production, and if not, we are always open to suggestions.
MetaSystems FISH Probes will remain committed to listening to our customers and translating the valuable input and feedback that we receive into new products that help to achieve fast and accurate results within molecular diagnostic and research laboratories worldwide.
Gene Amplification in Myeloid Lymphomas
"It appears likely that gene amplification is more common than has been reported previously. In two cases, the hsr amplification was only detected with mFISH/mBAND."

New MetaSystems Asia Office
MetaSystems Asia Co. Ltd., the successful Asian subsidiary office of MetaSystems, has moved to another place some weeks ago. The new venue is located in the wonderfully designed Bio-Informatics Centre just across the road from the old office. Moving has been necessary because due to the dynamic growth of MetaSystems Asia there was a shortage of office space at the old place. The new office also comes with a dedicated laboratory for MetaSystems probes. And, as an extra benefit, the conference table is now surrounded by windows with a panoramic view over Science Park Hong Kong.
