Microarrays for research into constitutional cytogenetics, rare disease and cancer

Microarrays from OGT

For a number of years, microarrays have been considered the gold standard for research into copy number variation (CNV) and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in constitutional, rare disease and cancer applications. The technique has enabled researchers to identify significantly more CNV and other structural alterations compared to traditional techniques such as karyotyping or MLPA.

The CytoSure™ range of microarrays provide a comprehensive choice of highly customisable array formats for research into constitutional and rare disease genetics, haematological cancer and pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS). Many of the CytoSure arrays are also highly targeted to allow detection of microdeletions and duplications at exon-level resolution.

The impact of microarray probe design on detecting copy number variants at exon-resolution

Application note: The impact of microarray probe design on detecting copy number variants at exon-resolution

CNV plays a part in many different genetic disorders. To understand the full genetic spectrum of variants in any sample it is crucial to carry out CNV analysis at the highest resolution possible. Read our new application note to learn how microarray design impacts the ability of arrays to accurately detect CNV at high resolutions.
