About 100 guests from 36 countries met on the XVIII. MetaSystems Distributor Meeting (DM) in November to exchange experiences and to get to know new trends and developments at MetaSystems.
The XCyting DNA Probes of MetaSystems
Since 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 mBANDmBAND. 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.

Gene Amplification in Myeloid Lymphomas
"It appears likely that gene amplification is more common than has been reported previously. In two cases, the hsr amplification was only detected with mFISH/mBAND."
Second MetaSystems User Day in Altlussheim, Germany
Neon, the outstanding MetaSystems case and image management system, offers many tools and helpful gadgets to streamline routine workflows, for example in cytogenetics labs. The second MetaSystems User Day, addressed to MetaSystems clients from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, provided in different workshops knowledge helping to unleash the full power of the system.
