This looks like a really exciting product release from Agilent.
Agilent’s CGH arrays are already an excellent product for cytogenetics customers. The possibilities of the platform have now been extended to include a set of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) probes on the same microarray. Researchers can now obtain detection of copy number and copy-neutral variations simultaneously, such as loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and uniparental disomy (UPD) on a single array.
Current content source database includes over 28 million predesigned, in silico-validated human CGH probes that span exonic, intronic, intergenic,CNV, pseudoautosomal, and segmented duplication DNA regions, and SNP probes for ~65,000 SNPs.
I was talking to a researcher yesterday who is very interestedin the possibilities that this new product can offer to his research projects. If you too would like to learn some more, please contact You Do Bio.
