Stellaris® RNA FISH Technology

The Stellaris® RNA FISH Technology offers an RNA visualisation method for simultaneous detection, localisation, and quantification of individual mRNA molecules at the cellular level. Both highly sensitive and specific, a Stellaris® RNA FISH assay is comprised of up to 48 single-labelled oligonucleotides designed to selectively bind to target RNA transcripts.

How the Stellaris® FISH Technology works
When bound to RNA, a fluorescent signal is produced for the detection of single RNA molecules as diffraction-limited spots using conventional fluorescence microscopy. The inherent redundancies of this direct detection method minimize the possibility of false negative and false positive signals. Positive signals are identified from combined localised fluorescence of multiple probes. Off-target binding of single probes generates only weak and diffuse fluorescence, which falls well below the threshold for detection of the targeted mRNAs. The short probe lengths can easily penetrate the cellular matrix for efficient hybridisation.

Benefits of using the Stellaris® FISH Technology
• Simple protocol
• Inexpensive
• Platform-independent
• Same day results
• Compatible with many sample types and applications
• Multiplex RNA target detection
• No isolation, purification or amplification of RNA required

Stellaris® RNA FISH Probes available in a wide variety of fluorophores in visible spectrum

Stellaris® RNA FISH Probes Available In A Wide Variety Of Fluorophores

The dye choices in a multiplex assay are largely determined by the filters available on the imaging platform, but it is possible to design an assay including a DAPI nuclear stain and three Stellaris® RNA FISH Probe sets labelled with reporter dyes with minimal spectral overlap.
