Little Dipper™ Processor for FISH

The SciGene Little Dipper Processor for FISH [Ord. 1080-70-2 (220V)] automates slide processing for FISH analysis. The robotic system controls staining, wash, agitation, time and buffer temperatures for processing batches of up to 24 slides following optimized protocols. The system eliminates messy jars, water baths and staining dishes used in manual methods, freeing up valuable technician time.

Applications & Benefits

The Little Dipper Processor is ready to use for processing slides for FISH slide processing.

Precise control of timing and washing movement is critical for obtaining consistent low backgrounds and good contrast staining. The instrument is designed for use by CLIA-certified labs with a built-in system for verifying and calibrating accurate conditions.

After filling baths, and activating stir bars, slides are loaded into either a 12 or 24-position rack and mounted onto the robotic arm. Staining and washing action is achieved through the movement of the robotic arm and stir bar vortex. The instrument performs programmed wash and dry steps and holds the slides in the dark ready for imaging. The simplicity of design makes training a snap and ensures consistent day-to-day results by different operators.
