genome structure

In Cytopia: Everyone is dedicated to seeing the truth of genome structure

Optical genome mapping (OGM) mapping provides a direct, high-resolution view of intact, long DNA molecules free from the bias and errors introduced by Next-Generation Sequencing.

In Cytopia: Structural variants have nowhere to hide

Saphyr provides unbiased, genome-wide structural variant detection of all structural variants starting at 500bp, including complex rearrangements, and with sensitivity down to 1% allele fraction.

nowhere to hide

In Cytopia: The path to genomic enlightenment is one smooth workflow

Current cytogenetics methods–FISH, karyotyping, CMA–are outdated, highly manual processes that are time-consuming, labor-intensive, and cannot scale. Saphyr consolidates the data currently generated by three workflows into one single, digital workflow for rapidly detecting and analyzing structural and copy number variants genome-wide and at high throughput.

In Cytopia: Data analysis is done in just a few clicks

Analyze data in minutes, not days. With just a few clicks you can visualize entire genomes with interactive circos plots and perform a comprehensive analysis of your samples.
