Tethis developed an innovative product, microFIND®, applying nanotechnology to research in cytogenetics, and the equipment used to automate the sample preparation part with this new compact device: autoFIND S and autoFIND F.
The novelty of microFIND® lies in the use of Tethis’ nanostructured materials, which allows the integration of consolidated analysis protocols such FISH into a miniaturized device.
Tethis’ technology has also been designed for the automation of diagnostic tests.
microFIND® is a slide with a proprietary coating, coupled with microfluidic compartments or microchannels, where cells are loaded and processed for FISH: after hybridizations slides are analyzed by fluorescence microscopy using conventional manual or automated systems.
microFIND® is designed to provide the processing of 1 up to 4 hybridizations occurring inside the microchannels.
