Automating the CGH/CNV Workflow with the Bravo Automated Liquid Handling Platform
24 Apr 2013
The Agilent Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) and Copy Number Variation (CNV) portfolio combines flexibility and sensitivity by providing catalogue and custom microarrays designed specifically for researchers studying aberrations and copy number variations in numerous organisms. This application note demonstrates how the Agilent Bravo Automated Liquid Handling Platform can be used to automate CGH/CNV sample fragmentation, labeling, purification, and pre-hybridization setup in a 96-well format. Throughput is increased and hands-on time is decreased, with no compromise in data quality.
