Agilent CGH Assay Workflow

Custom CGH and CGH+SNP Content at your Finger Tips

Overcome technology limitations with robust customization tools and streamlined software analysis for CNV and LOH detection

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.

Customization never got this easy for array CGH

Agilent Custom CGH+SNP Microarray product line uses Agilent's SurePrint technology to design and print user-defined CGH+SNP microarrays. Using Agilent's eArray free application, users can design their own CGH+SNP microarrays to detect copy number changes and copy neutral aberrations, such as loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and uniparental disomy (UPD), on the same array.
