Agilent CGH Assay Workflow
Agilent's high quality, oligonucleotide library synthesis (OLS) based CGH microarrays accurately detect copy number variations at the whole genome level. Unlike other SNP-based, chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) platforms, Agilent offers a true 2 color comparison between validated, biological reference DNA and sample. Agilent's CGH microarrays are manufactured with proprietary (OLS) technology, which produces high quality 60 mer long oligos optimized to precisely target any region of interest with base pair resolution. Agilent's aCGH platform features a combination of optimal probe length and probe coverage to accurately detect small differences in copy number changes.
The Agilent microarray workflow is streamlined and takes less time to process samples compared with other methods. Agilent offers complete solutions with reagents and instruments needed to process your aCGH data including custom and catalog arrays, labeling kits, hybridization and wash solutions, hybridization oven, the SureScan microarray scanner, and easy-to-use software to interpret your results.
