Other cells that are susceptible include Vero and African green monkey kidney.

However, most of the formats for detection of PCR products use solid-phase systems. In one variation of this format, the fragments from a gel are blotted unto a support matrix and fixed. A labeled probe is then added and reacted with the blot. If the probe hybridizes, the location of the amplican can be determined by autoradiography for radiolabeled probes and by the deposition of a colored precipitate using enzyme probes labeled systems. An alternative solid-phase hybridization technique is to attach the unlabeled probe to the wells of a 96-well plate.
