myTags – FISH Probes
myTags Labeled
myTags® labeled probes are a simple solution for producing successful hybridization to targets in FISH applications.

Due to the short size of the probes and the consistent melting temperature range, myTags Labeled probes are able to efficiently cross cell barriers and bind to their intended target in fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) applications. myTags Labeled probes improve experimental results by reducing non-specific hybridization and background signal which typically occur with traditional BAC catalog FISH probes. Our probes are delivered ready-to-use at a minimum yield of 700pmol. Probes can be single- or triple-labeled, and we can assist in selecting compatible fluorophore combinations for multi-color FISH or other applications requiring multiple fluorophores.

  • Any Scale – Up to tens of thousands of probes per library
  • Ready-To-Go – Use immediately for labeling assays
  • High Specificity – Probes bind only to intended targets, reducing background noise
  • Variety of Labels – Range of fluorophores available for various microscopy filters
  • Custom Designs – Produce probes specific only to genomic regions of interest

Overview

Information

myTags Labeled probes from Arbor Biosciences are a convenient source of ready-to-use, highly specific fluorescent probes for your next FISH project. myTags FISH probes have been successfully used in specialized applications including 3D DNA-FISH, Cryo-FISH, and RNA-FISH in a variety of cell types. We offer free assistance in designing probes or can incorporate self-designed probes into the myTags labeling system.

For individuals who wish to label their own probes or have the independence to change and test multiple fluorophores, we offer myTags Immortal Libraries for labeling at your own facility.

NEW: We have updated the names of myTags Labeled probes to better reflect their intended coverage area on the target chromosomes. The maximum number of probes and pricing for each library has not changed. Please contact us with any questions or determine which solution is best suited for your intended application.

Labeling Options

Choose from our standard offering of popular fluorophores and haptens, including biotin and digoxigenin. Probes can be single-labeled or triple-labeled with fluorophores to boost signal. Contact us regarding any label you would like that is not included in our standard offering.

FAQs
What recommendations do you make for successful FISH assays?

Generally we recommend probe densities between 3-10 probes per kilobase for target regions larger than 50kb. For target regions between 10-50kb, probe densities should be on the higher end of that range, and we may recommend using multiple fluorophores per probe to boost the signal.
Do you provide design assistance for FISH probes?

We offer complementary FISH probe design service using our proprietary design algorithm for most types of FISH projects. Please contact us with a brief description of your project, including the name of your study species, genomic coordinates, and any additional information.
Can you design probes for unassembled genomes?

We can work with any sequence to design probes. Please contact us with a brief description of your project, including the name of your study species, genomic coordinates, and any additional information.
How many FISH assays can you get from 700pmol of labeled probes?

The number of assays per library depends on a number of factors including the probe density of your library, the size of your target region, the number of probes in the library, and the FISH protocol. Generally we recommend starting with 10pmol of labeled probes per standard FISH slide and then modifying the input amount based on the initial results.
Which dyes do you recommend?

Atto-550 is our most popular dye labeling option, followed by Atto-488, Atto-594, and Atto-647N. Biotin, Digoxigenin and 6FAM are also popular options that work well in multi-color FISH assays.
Do you offer other labeling options than what is listed on the website?

We may be able to accommodate other labeling options, please contact us for availability.
What FISH protocol should I use with labeled myTags libraries?

myTags FISH libraries are compatible with most FISH protocols. Please contact us for recommendations.
How quickly can you ship my order?

We generally ask for up to 3-4 weeks after an order is placed to ship myTags libraries.
