Counting Chromosomes in a Nucleus
Capturing clear images without fluorescence blurring
FISH (Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization) is a method of detecting the distribution or amount of specific nucleic acids (DNA or RNA) using fluorochromes. It is mainly used for detecting chromosomal abnormalities.

Sectioning + Z-stack
- Using the All-in-One Fluorescence Microscope BZ-X800
- The Sectioning function makes it possible to eliminate fluorescence blurring optically and capture clear images.
- A built-in Z-stack function captures multiple images at different focal positions and is able to create a fully focused image by combining only the areas that are at their sharpest focus.
- Hybrid Cell Count can be used to specify nuclei as mask areas to extract and count chromosomes contained in each nucleus.
