The myTags® technology has been expanded to development of FISH probe sets to detect full-length sequence of both the native viral RNA or positive (+) strand and the actively replicating RNA or negative (-) strand from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The two probe sets were designed to detect both strands in the same hybridization reaction or separate reactions. These probe sets may be used in various FISH applications including human and Vero (African Green Monkey kidney epithelial) cell cultures.
The myTags Expert SARS-CoV-2 probes were designed using the most recent genome available. These probe sets are specific to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and will not hybridize significantly to any other circulating human coronaviruses. The probe set is provided as either myTags Immortal, which can be amplified for continual use and labeled by the end-user, or as myTags Labeled probes which arrive ready for immediate use in cytogenetic applications.
- Convenient – Pre-labeled myTags probe sets are ready to use. Commonly used fluorophores are available.
- Range of applications – The probes are compatible with all cytogenomic applications
- Unlimited supply – Immortal libraries can be amplified and provide an unending supply.
