OGT's CytoSure Constitutional v3 +LOH Array

Oxford Gene Technology has launched its CytoSure Constitutional v3 +LOH array for comprehensive genetic analysis of developmental delay disorders. The CytoSure Constitutional v3 array content covers 502 targeted genes with high probe density across the most biologically relevant regions enabling the detection of single-exon aberrations. Adding the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) probes, allowed the array to have a broader range of copy-neutral genetic factors that can be investigated on a single array, including loss of heterozygosity and uniparental disomy. The SNP probe coverage also functions as an additional validation of copy number variations, according to OGT.
