The IGK Breakapart probe consists of a 183kb probe, labeled in red, covering a part of the distal IGK Variable region and a green probe, covering a 606kb region including the D2S2216 and D2S2510 markers which is telomeric to the Joining segments and the Constant segment of IGK.
The quality and reproducibility of results using the CytoCell kit has been vital in accurately detecting co-deletions in our glioma investigations. We now have a cost-effective test that we can rely on that is also easy to use and interpret. We've been consistently impressed with this kit - not to mention the support offered by OGT's customer service, and have completely transitioned over to CytoCell probes.
