Boekel Scientific RapidFISH Slide Hybridizer, 240200, Microscope slide oven (115V/230V)
The RapidFISH was designed to simplify Fluorescent In-Situ Hybridization (FISH) procedures for FFPE (formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue) samples, cell suspensions, and other tissue preparation procedures. Temperature control and humidity are essential for FISH probes to bind to RNA and DNA. The RapidFISH has a self-clamping slide tray design that maintains the required humidity. Microscope slides in the RapidFISH do not require coverslips to be glued because the removable tray of the slide incubator traps moisture in the system. Elimination of this step decreases processing time and ensures that the specimens stay hydrated during processing. The system has an easy to use control system for controlling temperature, time and controlled temperature steps. The device has a small footprint and still maintains excellent temperature stability and uniformity because of its dual heater convection system. FISH testing is used worldwide to identify biological markers in the form of DNA/RNA.
