In Situ Hybridization (ISH) refers to localizing a specific DNA or RNA sequence in whole embryos or tissues/tissue sections/cells using a labeled probe. The probe is either a labeled complementary DNA (oligoprobe) or a complementary RNA (riboprobe).
Creative Diagnostics offers customized ISH service, including probe design, tissue procurement and expertly interpreted gene expression studies. Our scientists have successfully developed a fixative that preserves nucleic acid best and allows the most beautiful ISH results. Besides, our scientists have undergone extensive ISH training to bring you highly sensitive nucleic acid detection in the sample.
Multiplex ISH can be performed whereby multiple probes are used to simultaneously localize different sequences in the same tissue section. Creative Diagnostics has more options of probe design, labeling and purification.
