The Cancer Genomics Consortium annual summer meeting is a unique forum for education and discussion of best practices in laboratory genomics. The CGC is committed to advancing clinical diagnostics through the use of genomic technologies (microarray, massively parallel sequencing, etc.) and improving the data processing that accompanies these technologies.
The XCyting DNA Probes of MetaSystems
Download the new Probes Catalog 2017-18 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.
FISH for Cell Line Monitoring
[...] The pathogenetic mechanisms that arise from chromosome 7 rearrangements and lead to malignancy are still poorly understood. The use of leukemia-derived cells might be a usefool tool to shed some light on these mechanisms. [...] We carried out [...] FISH [...] on three different myeloid leukemia-derived cell lines [...]. The probes [...] were whole and partial chromosome paints, [...] (m)FISH probes as well as locus specific probes [...]. With this study we confirm the importance of using a series of FISH probes to characterise chromosomal abnormalities in detail [...].

ECA 2017 in Florence
The European Cytogeneticists Association (E.C.A) yearly meeting, the 11th European Cytogenetics Conference took place in Florence, Italy and MetaSystems was proud to be sponsor and exhibitor of this event. Visitors to the MetaSystems booth had the opportunity to see the current pre-release edition of Neon, probably the last one before the official product launch. Of course also MetaSystems Probes took the opportunity to provide cytogeneticists and other passersby to show and explain the newest probe kits and product lines. The German MetaSystems team has been actively supported by the colleagues from MetaSystems s.r.l. in Milan.
