CytoSNP 850K Beadchip

Cyto850K

Cyto850K Beadchip

The Infinium CytoSNP-850K BeadChip provides the most comprehensive coverage of cytogenomic-relevant genes for studies associated with congenital disorders and cancer.

Thorough coverage for constitutional and cancer applications
The gene list for the CytoSNP-850K BeadChip was defined based on content from the International Collaboration for Clinical Genomics (ICCG)1 (formerly known as the International Standard of Cytogenomics Array (ISCA) consortium), the Cancer Cytogenetics Microarray Consortium (CCMC)2 , and Sanger, providing a comprehensive view of cytogenomic activity. It is the first SNP-based human microarray to leverage the latest input from the international community for constitutional and cancer applications.

The CytoSNP-850K BeadChip contains approximately 850,000 empirically selected single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) spanning the entire genome with enriched coverage for 3,262 genes of known cytogenetics relevance in both constitutional and cancer applications. The high density of SNPs combined with an intelligent design based on the latest updates from peer-reviewed literature enables the detection of more relevant chromosomal aberrations relative to any other array technologies.

Higher detection sensitivity for low-level mosaics
A unique attribute of the Infinium array technology is the use of long 50-mer probes for detection. This increases sensitivity for low-level mosaics and offers the highest resolution for copy-neutral loss of heterozygosity (LOH). In addition, each SNP is represented in at least 15x redundancy to increase the signal-to-noise ratio for making accurate copy number variation (CNV) and absence of heterozygosity (AOH) calls across the genome. Only ten consecutive probes are necessary to make accurate CNV calls, demonstrating the high performance level of the Infinium assay.
