Are you attending ASH 2022 in New Orleans, LA, USA?

Sign up to join us as we dive into the landscape of cytogenetic assays for the detection of structural variations (SV) in hematological malignancies, and learn why optical genome mapping (OGM) has gained significant popularity and adoption by cytogenetic labs. Hear from our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Alka Chaubey, and industry colleagues in oncology and pathology, as they discuss the utility of OGM over dinner.

Medical guidelines for classifications of hematological malignancy subtypes are continuously updated and classical cytogenetic methods demonstrate significant limitations for understanding the complexity of genetic markers needed for the appropriate classification of the heme malignancy sub-type.

OGM offers a more precise and higher-resolution method for SV detection and alleviates the subjectivity and ambiguity that often accompanies classical methods, such as karyotyping and FISH. OGM not only accurately detects the structural variations of biological importance, it aids in the identification of cryptic genomic aberrations and novel biomarkers of significant relevance, thereby providing answers in a greater number of clinical research cases.

RSVP today to join us for dinner and to learn more – we’ll discuss real-life case studies from leading institutions around the world.



Date: Monday, December 12th 2022

Location: Saints & Sinners, 627 Bourbon St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Time: 8:00 PM


RSVP is required.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
