XCyte 5

Human mBAND Probe

Order Number
Package Size
(3 Tests)


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.
