Dako Omnis Mixing Device is an accessory to the Dako Omnis instrument. It is designed specifically to support the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and the chromogenic in situ hybridization (CISH) procedures. The Dako IQISH buffer is extremely viscous, and during storage the reagent phase separates. Hence the Dako IQISH reagents require a particular preparatory processing to thaw and unify the content.
Some Dako ISH reagents are therefore provided in dedicated ISH reagent vials containing a mixing ball, and the Dako Omnis Mixing Device is designed to fit together with these ISH reagent vials.
Dako Omnis Mixing Device contains a magnet that enables the mixing ball to move up and down (110 cycles) inside the vial after 40 minutes thawing of the ISH reagent; thus ensuring a homogenous probe mix prior to application on the Dako Omnis instrument.
