How to improve Q-FISH

Postby mhviegas » Apr 21 2013 12:53 pm

Dear forum members. I have recently entered a lab that performs qFISH for telomere analysis basically following the protocol described by Lansdorp et al (1996). However, I realize that the PNA probe (ccctaa)3 gives quite a significant background. I wonder if any of you have experience working with PNA probes and know how to improve the signal-to-noise ratio.
Many thanks in advance!
