FFPE

Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) samples represent the largest source of biological material for human cancer studies. However, handling these samples in the laboratory can be challenging due to size, shape and mounting location changes. CellWriter reacts to changing tissues and adjusts both the probe volume and location for each section.

CellWriter technology:

  • Automates slide preparation
  • Utilizes smaller probes
  • Reduces cost per sample
  • Increases the number of assays per slide
  • Decreases processing time

Dynamic Probe Dispensing

Reduce FISH probe use while improving hybridization quality for FFPE slide processing.Virtually choose the appropriate size coverslip for each tissue area and dispense the appropriate amount of probe to match the coverslip size, leading to a reduction in probe use, coverslips, denatures and hybs highly variable FFPE tissue samples for FISH analysis.
