Auto Chromosome Stainer is the equipment which is for automatically executing aging and staining processes that are preprocessing of chromosome analysis using the G-banding method. Auto Chromosome Stainer implements automatically the aging and staining treatment of chromosome specimen slides by setting the glass slides of chromosome metaphase specimens has been deployed to the device. It normally takes 2-3 days of aging process. However the aging step has dramatically improved for the efficiency of the routine works by performing the processing of approximately 30 seconds by unique approach. It is possible to process up to 20 glass slides in one cycle of operation about 30 minutes.
It has a high processing capacity since it is also possible to set the additional new glass slides during operation. In addition to providing a stable aging and staining treatments by mechanical operation, it is possible to execute a routine process after confirming with a single glass slide in advance by preforming test operation before starting routine works. It requires no retyping of all the setting data because there is a function to be reflected in main protocol from the result of test operation. In the main process, there are standard mode and eco-mode which can be reduced the amount of trypsin, ethanol and water in the process. Eco-mode can be operated in half of reagent volume for the normal mode. Auto Chromosome Stainer can save installation site as it is a desktop equipment.
