“Scorpion“ for MicroFISH Assays. Art Robbins Instruments has converted – in co-operation with the American company SciGene – the Scorpion workstation to automate MicroFISH slide preparation. MicroFISH is a miniaturized, slide-based FISH assay that reduces probe cost per test up to tenfold and the labour used to prepare and process assay slides by over 60 %. The MicroFISH assay uses a multi-well slide for performing up to eight independent microvolume FISH assays using only 1 µl of cell sample and probe. The Scorpion, with it simple step-by-step interface, streamlines the workflow and increases quality control by automating slide dropping and probe application, and provides inventory tracking and batch reports with probe lot number and expiration dates.
The Scorpion MicroFISH with slides and suitable process equipment will be shown for the first time in Europe on the 29th Tumorgenetics Workshop from 19th to 21st May in the Leonardo Royal Hotel in Munich at the booth of our partner AlphaMetrix Biotech.
