Array quality CNV detection with an NGS panel

Tech note: Comparison of CytoSure Constitutional NGS with microarrays for CNV detection

This technical note illustrates how the CytoSure® Constitutional NGS assay is as effective as a microarray in calling CNVs and LOH, with the additional ability to be able to detect SNVs and Indels, and all in a single, robust assay.

New - FISH protocol videos

Available to watch now...

Cytocell FFPE protocol video

Great news! We have updated our FFPE protocol video and even created a brand-new haematology protocol video. We have filmed both videos in the Cambridge (UK) site laboratories with our Field Application Specialist, Gothami Fonseka. Gothami demonstrates the FISH protocols for haematology and FFPE applications, which includes the tissue pretreatment stage of the pathology workflow.

SureSeq SNiPpets



Detect SNVs, indels and exon-level to whole gene CNVs in breast and ovarian cancer

SureSeq™ Breast Cancer + CNV Panel

The SureSeq™ Breast Cancer + CNV Panel has been developed to provide comprehensive coverage of 7 key genes implicated in breast and ovarian cancer, including BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2 and PTEN. This provides researchers with a single NGS workflow to study clinically relevant aberrations and alleviates the burden of running multiple assays.
