PRLog - Oct. 17, 2012 - SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- SciGene today introduced CytoBond™ Removable Coverslip Sealant, a gel-like material superior to rubber cement for temporary sealing of coverslips when incubating FISH/CISH probes with tissue samples. It provides a reliable seal at high temperatures without humidification and removes easily in a single piece leaving no residue.
Samples sealed with CytoBond sealant can be heated in a standard oven; eliminating the need for specialized equipment and costly humidification strips. CytoBond sealant is provided ready-to-use in a convenient squeeze bottle with applicator tip.
"Customers will find CytoBond extremely easy to use and quick to remove," said Paul Scott, product specialist for SciGene. “Time spent removing stubborn, dried pieces of rubber cement from slides will be a thing of the past."
SciGene (Sunnyvale, California, USA) is a privately held company, founded in 2003, that develops instruments and reagents to automate FISH and CMA workflows used in research and clinical diagnostic laboratories.
