New CGH products.
Earlier this year, Agilent introduced the genome-wide Human Genome CGH Microarmy and CGH Analytics software. The chip features 40,000 60-mer oligonucleotide probes with an average spatial resolution of 75 kilobase and requires 25 nanograms of DNA.
At AACR, NimbleGen debuted its CGH microarrays, the Human Whole-Genome Array CGH and Custom Fine-Tiling Array CGI-L Each chip features 385,000 long-oligonucleotide probes. The Whole Genome Army's median probe spacing is 6,000 base pairs.
On the automation front, Genetix introduced an integrated system targeting array-based CGH from extraction of DNA through scanning and analysis. It consists of labeling kits, automated done pickers, arraying platforms and a high resolution scanner.
