The meeting of the German Society of Human Genetics (gfh) was held in Weimar, Germany this week and of course the attendees had the opportunity to visit the joined booth of MetaSystems and MetaSystems Probes. Main topics of the exhibition have been the latest advancements of the Neon case and imaging platform and RapidHyb, the revolutionary fast hybridization times of MetaSystems Probes' FISH probes.
XL 21q22 / XCP 21
- Order Number
- Package Size
- 50 µl (5 Tests)
This probe is not intended for use to analyze trisomy 21 in prenatal diagnosis.
XL 21q22/XCP 21 hybridized to normal human metaphase spreads will result in green signals along the entire length of chromosome 21 combined with orange signals at 21q22 (Down Syndrome Critical Region 4). A translocation with involvement of chromosome 21 will result in a split of a green signal. In this case the green signal will be partially visible on the der(21) and the respective partner chromosome of the translocation. Depending on the localization of the breakpoint on the der(21), the signal of the locus-specific probe remains on the der(21) or will be observed on the translocation partner.
