Functionalized Coverslips for DNA combing

PolyAn's Combing Coverslips are surface-functionalized glass coverslips that are suitable for DNA combing. The Combing Coverslips are designed to allow fixation and stretching of DNA strands with low fluorescence background and improved signal-to-noise ratio for DNA detection. PolyAn's Combing Coverslips are compatible with the Genomic Vision combing systems FiberComb® and FiberVision®S.


DNA combing

DNA combing (also called molecular combing) is a biochemical technique to produce an array of uniformly oriented and stretched DNA. The uniform orientation and stretching of the combed DNA is beneficial for nucleic acid hybridization studies such as fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), as it increases the accessibility for the hybridization target sequences as well as the resolution for the optical detection.
