A sequential staining protocol for revealing first G-and then R-bands on early metaphase chromosomes is presented. Lymphocyte cultures are synchronized with methotrexate, and released from the S-phase block with bromodeoxyuridine. The resulting early metaphase cells are initially G-banded with Wright's stain and then R-banded by the fluorescence plus Giemsa (FPG) technique.
