myTags Custom FISH-probe Libraries

• Custom designed ready-to-use labeled probes
• Unlimited Quantity - Up to tens of thousands of probes per library
• Eliminate background signal from non-specific and cross-hybridization in your FISH
• Range of fluorophores for various microscopy filters
• Consistent – Probes designed with normalized Tm for single hybridization profile
• Increased Signal Intensity with triple-labeled probes
• Free bioinformatic design service for custom target regions


Break free from the limitations of
traditional FISH with high-specificity,
repeat-free myTags® probes

myTags® labeled probes from our partner Arbor Biosciences 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, these probes are able to efficiently cross cell barriers and bind to their intended target. myTags® improve experimental results by reducing non-specific hybridization and background signal which typically occur with traditional BAC catalog probes.

Labeled myTags® probes are delivered ready-to-use at a minimum yield of 500pmol of single-stranded DNA. The probes can be single- or triple-labeled with a fluorophore of choice, and we can offer assistance in selecting compatible fluorophore combinations for multi-color FISH or other applications requiring multiple fluorophores. If a desired labeling option is not listed in our standard offering, please contact us for availability.

We offer free assistance in designing probes or self-designed probes can be incorporated into the myTags® labeling system. 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.
