Agilent CGH Assay Workflow

GC Hero Image

Optimize your molecular cytogenetic test workflow with a single biological experiment on Agilent's array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) platform

With the Agilent aCGH platform you can run just a few samples or several sample series at the same time. In cytogenetic laboratories, Agilent aCGH is typically implemented as the first-tier experiment as only one experiment is required to screen the entire genome, unlike other labor intensive molecular cytogenetic techniques such as karyotype studies, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), or Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification (MLPA).

  • Complete end-to-end workflow
  • Established technology with over 10,000 published papers
  • Generate results in 2-3 days
  • User friendly, CytoGenomics analysis software
  • Multiple applications - Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS), Prenatal, Postnatal and Cancer

Use aCGH to complement or replace your current molecular tests.
