Qbiogene Product divisions
1. Molecular cytogenetics: 
Directly labelled FiSH probes for use on Metaphase and Interphase cell spreads. Classes of available probes are Unique sequences for a specific gene area, Satellite probes for chromosome enumeration and identification, P or Q arm-specific paints ( libraries ), Telomeric probes, Total chromosome painting probes, and are used in the following applications:

  • Haematology: Leukemias expressing gene translocations, amplifications, deletions, aneuploidy.
    Ex: BCR/ABL unique sequence,dual colour, dual fusion. Satellite combinations 7 & 8 for ploidy studies. Also break-apart rearrange dual colour probes.
  • Oncology : Solid tumours expressing gene amplifications, deletions, translocations. 
    Ex: Dual colour Her-2 neu.
  • Prenatal & Postnatal disorders: Dual colour probes for detection of Microdeletion syndromes, Ex: DiGeorge , Prader-Willi, Aneuploidy to confirm Downs’ syndrome.
  • Radiation dosimetry monitoring: Combinations of Total Chromosome Paints. Ex: TCP 1,2,4 or TCP 3,5,6
  • Telomeric probes, for studies involving deletions or subtle rearrangements in the tips of chromosome arms.
  • In-Situ Hybridization reagents: 20X SSC, NP 40, Hybrisol, DAPI, Tissue Pre-treatment kits, Hybridization buffers, etc.
