Introducing the IVDR-Certified FISH Probes 

Regulation (EU) 2017/746 (IVDR) is a new regulatory framework for IVD medical devices. It sets higher standards for quality and safety for in vitro diagnostic medical devices to ensure the highest level of public health protection. All CytoCell® IVD FISH probes are affected by the IVDR and need to be compliant by May 2026. Probes used for Research Use Only (RUO) are unaffected. Critically, clinical labs will be required to use an IVDR-certified probe if one is available on the market by this date. OGT will continue to pursue additional certification for CytoCell FISH probe portfolio.
