Oxford Gene Technology this week launched high-throughput genomic DNA labeling kits and sample tracking spike-ins for use with its CytoSure array comparative genomic hybridization products.

The new CytoSure HT Genomic DNA Labeling Kit enables users to simultaneously label up to 96 samples using a 96-well plate format. The kit maximizes signal-to-noise ratio and reduces sample-to-sample variation, OGT said.

The firm's CytoSure ISCA Sample Tracking Spike-ins can be used to identify any potential sample mix-up during array processing, the firm added.
