Tissue Pretreatment Kit

Introducing the first Pretreatment kit capable of preparing slides for CISH and/or FISH analysis on Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) tissue.

Our ready-to-use Tissue Pretreatment Kit has been optimized to produce excellent visual results with our extensive Aquarius® Pathology FISH range.

To further extend the utility of the kit we have also validated its use with other commercially available CISH (chromogenic in situ hybridization) and FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization) DNA probes**.

With ease-of-use and convenience in mind, our simple two stage FFPE slide preparation protocol employs the use of ready-to-use reagents; which have been optimized to increase the permeabilization of cell membranes and facilitate penetration of the desired FISH or CISH DNA probe.

Running our PETS protocol was taking upwards of 5 hours to complete based on the previous SOP. After the technical training visit from Cytocell, we were able to make some tweaks to reduce the protocol time down to just 1 hour and 15 minutes, with the same or better results. Michelle Casey, Assistant Genetic Technologist at Leicestershire Genetics Centre
