MetaSystems proudly announces the opening of our first subsidiary in the Southern hemisphere. The new office is located in Buenos Aires, Argentina and bears the name MetaSystems Latinoamérica SAS (MetaSystems LatAm). The foundation has been the response to the growing demand on technical knowledge and 'know how' experienced in the last years all over the Latin American territories. MetaSystems LatAm takes care for the organization of sales, support, and customer relation activities in all countries in Latin America. It will manage distributor companies and contacts in the region, and it will facilitate communication between end-users, distributors and headquarters in Germany.
Human mBAND Probe

The mBAND technique is based on a series of partial chromosome paints for sequential partially overlapping chromosome regions of a single chromosome. For labeling the same 5 fluorochromes as in the 24XCyte probe are used. The characteristic multicolor banding pattern of mBAND is generated by quantifying the fluorescence intensity ratios along the chromosome. These ratios are unique and visualized as band-specific pseudo colors. mBAND provides information that allows for a precise analysis of even highly complex inter- and intrachromosomal aberrations.
The mBAND technique is protected by international patents (e.g. US 7,050,911, EP 0 957 176, EP 1 672 083).
