Conventional Cytogenetics

DeltaMDx provides comprehensive cytogenetic analysis of neoplastic blood and bone marrow using traditional chromosome banding techniques. Conventional cytogenetic analysis requires metaphase cell preparations derived from various culture techniques for the detection of cell populations containing aberrant chromosome structure and/or copy number. Some examples include translocations, inversions, deletions, and duplications which have all been found to have implications in cancer development.

The analysis is facilitated by the use of high-end Leica microscopes and state-of-the art imaging software in conjunction with the Genetix Slide Loader (GSL) 120 which is capable of hands-off scanning and capturing of cytogenetic slides providing for faster turn around times.
