Cytogenetic/Copy Number Analysis with Microarrays


Microarrays are an ideal platform for copy number variation (CNV) analysis and molecular cytogenetic research. Our microarray-based assays are a reliable genome-wide approach for high-resolution DNA copy number analysis to detect gains, losses, loss of heterozygosity (LOH)/absence of heterozygosity (AOH), copy-neutral loss of heterozygosity (cnLOH), regions identical-by-descent, and mosaicism. Quickly and easily identify aneuploidies, microdeletions, microduplications, as well as other types of chromosomal aberrations across the genome.


Cytogenetic/copy number analysis solutions

CytoScan XON Suite

An exon-level copy number assay designed to cover the whole genome and provide the sensitivity and flexibility required to improve and complement variant analysis for clinical research

CarrierScan Assay

A single solution for expanded carrier screening research, which improves efficiency by consolidating multiple sequence and structural variant detection assays into a single, comprehensive, pan-ethnic microarray solution.

OncoScan CNV Assay

A single assay to detect chromosomal arm aberrations, focal changes, LOH, cnLOH, and more with enhanced resolution in ~900 cancer genes. Data can be generated from only 80 ng of FFPE-derived DNA within 48 hours.

CytoScan HD Suite

A whole-genome microarray solution with hybrid design, both SNPs and non-polymorphic probes, providing you broad coverage and high performance for detecting chromosomal aberrations with greater than 99% sensitivity

Chromosome Analysis Suite (ChAS) Software

Simple, free software tailored to cytogenetic research analysis and reporting with a streamlined analysis workflow, customizable filters, mosaic identification and non-integer CN reporting, and direct access to internal and external databases for meaningful interpretation of your data

GeneChip Scanner

The GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G system offers high-resolution microarray processing to improve efficiency in gene expression and genetic analysis applications.

Nimbus Target Preparation Instrument

An automated liquid-handling workstation that can be used with CytoScan assays to help reduce intra-operator variability and the labor burden associated with complex manual pipetting, helping to improve reproducibility and laboratory efficiency.
