The CGC annual meeting is a unique forum for education and discussion of best practices in laboratory genomics.
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.

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 [...].
OOO MetaSystems Russia on the International Scientific Congress 'Genetics of XXI Century'
The Congress 'Genetics of XXI Century' in Moscow, Russia (May 2019) has been one of the most important events for the professional international community of geneticists. Our partner company in Russia OOO MetaSystems considered it a good occasion to present the new camera CoolCube 4 connected to a state-of-the-art Neon system to the public.
Workshop by OOO MetaSystems Russia on Neuromorphology
N.N.Burdenko National Scientific and Practical Center for Neurosurgery is one of the first MetaSystems’ customers in Russia who implemented FISH on tissues into their daily practice ( in the late 90ies). Our partner in Russia, OOO MetaSystems therefore provides comprehensive support of all initiatives shown by the head of pathology lab and its staff.
