The Quips XL and Quips LS Genetic Workstations were developed for clinical use in karyotyping as well as research use in fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) analyses. The Quips XL workstation includes a Macintosh PowerPC computer, a printer, a 1.3-million-pixel cooled charge-coupled device (CCD) camera, a triple-band pass filter set, and an automated filter wheel. Both workstations are equipped with Quips Karyotyping Software, which enables users to automatically or manually classify chromosomes and separate touching or overlapping chromosomes. In addition, they offer SmartCapture FISH imaging software for capturing, enhancing, analyzing, and printing images of FISH probes with a variety of user-defined features. The Quips XL system also uses Quips CGH Analysis Software, which contains tools designed to simplify CGH analysis and allow users to produce quantitative interpretation and reports from a common user interface.
