Product Description

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.

Please note that this product is not classified as an IVD product in the EU according to the REGULATION (EU) 2017/746 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 5 April 2017 on in vitro diagnostic medical devices and repealing Directive 98/79/EC and Commission Decision 2010/227/EU.
