Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) is a microarray-based technique used to identify chromosomal copy number changes (deletions, amplifications, and micro-amplifications) on a genome-wide scale or, using custom arrays, on a specific series of regions.

Service Includes:

  • Total DNA quantity and purity checked with NanoDrop
  • Labelling of two DNA samples per array with cyanine-3 and cyanine-5
  • Hybridization/washing/scanning of arrays
  • Spot quantification (Agilent Feature Extraction)
  • Feature Extraction output files sent to customer via the Client Portal

We also offer an optional data analysis service.

Sample Requirements:

0.75 to 3 µg (depending on the density of array of choice, please inquire) high quality intact DNA is required for labelling with no amplification step.

50 ng of high quality intact DNA, or 100 ng DNA with fragment size >500 bp, can be labelled following a whole genome amplification step (please inquire for more details).
