Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) Services
MDS offers a variety of FISH services to further analyze your clones. With our FISH services, MDS will provide you with a written report that includes a brief description of methods used, a brief description of results, and final conclusion of the tests. If appropriate, we'll also provide photographic documentation, along with the number of cells analyzed. Simply supply a 10 kb or larger genomic clone, preferably cosmid size or larger, and at least 10 µg of DNA.
