The ERRS meeting series belongs to a tradition of European conferences on radiation research initiated already in 1953. This year’s meeting is jointly organized by the Swedish Radiobiological Society and Lund University. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this event will be organized as a virtual conference.
The XCyting DNA Probes of MetaSystems
Download the current Probes CatalogSince 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 [...].

Development of High Precision SARS-COV-2 (RNA) FISH Probes
The outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has led to global efforts to understand the mechanisms of the virus-induced Covid-19 disease and to seek to find effective countermeasures. In this context, our daughter company MetaSystems Italy joined forces with RNA-FISH specialist PixelBiotech for development of highly sensitive and precise SARS-Covid-2 probes.

Against the background of the worldwide appearance of the Corona virus (Sars CoV-2), the most important task for everyone at present is to contribute to slowing down its speed of propagation by adapting their behavior. Nevertheless, we are striving to maintain our services as far as possible and provide our customers and partners with the usual good service.
