OGT Expands CytoSure™ aCGH Product Range
Product News Feb 10, 2011
Oxford Gene Technology (OGT), provider of innovative clinical genetics and diagnostic solutions to advance molecular medicine, has expanded its CytoSure™ product range to include high-throughput genomic DNA labelling kits and sample tracking spike-ins. These new products will further streamline workflow and minimise sample tracking errors when performing array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH).
The new CytoSure HT Genomic DNA Labelling Kit makes it possible to simultaneously label up to 96 samples using a 96-well plate format, boosting cost-effectiveness, increasing processing speed and facilitating automated sample handling. The unique formulation and mastermix-based approach maximizes signal-to-noise ratio and reduces sample-to-sample variation, facilitating the confident detection of even the smallest aberrations.
CytoSure ISCA Sample Tracking Spike-ins ensure that any potential sample mix-up during array processing can be easily identified, safeguarding against mistakes and maximising data confidence. When used in combination with CytoSure ISCA arrays and OGT’s powerful CytoSure Interpret Software, these new products make it easy to correlate individual data sets with sample origin.
Ruth Burton, OGT’s Product Manager Clinical Solutions, commented: “We regularly invite our customers to provide input into future product development in order to better meet their requirements. Developed in response to recent feedback, these new products provide efficient DNA labelling and dedicated sample tracking, maximising precision in the aCGH workflow.”
The new CytoSure HT Genomic DNA Labelling Kit and ISCA Sample Tracking Spike-ins expand the CytoSure range of products and services, to further broaden OGT’s cutting-edge cytogenetic solutions and provide market-leading accuracy, reliability and ease-of-use.
