Phalanx Biotech Group Announces CytoOneArray(R), a Targeted Chromosomal Microarray


5/9/2012 9:41:52 AM

BELMONT, Calif., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Phalanx Biotech Group, a global genomic products and service provider, announces today the completion of manufacturing and testing for a proprietary targeted chromosomal microarray (CMA) designed specifically for prenatal and postnatal detection of microdeletions and microduplications related to a spectrum of congenital disorders, especially developmental and intellectual delay disorders. CytoOneArray® is capable of detecting 264 clinically confirmed disease regions and 41 subtelomere regions.

"Extensive testing from our CytoOneArray® manufacturing campaign demonstrates a quality product with high sensitivity, robustness, and reproducibility. We are extremely excited about offering our focused CMA at the time when cytogeneticists are adopting chromosomal microarray as a first-tier clinical diagnostic test," said Shengwan Lee, Ph.D., President and CEO. "As the first in a series of CMA microarrays, Phalanx will continue to expand its line of clinical diagnostic products by leveraging its high performance microarray technology and innovative manufacturing processes."

CytoOneArray® resulted from extensive collaborations between leading cytogeneticists in Taiwan and Phalanx Biotech Group. Through a comprehensive curation process of current, peer-reviewed and clinically confirmed disease regions, the Phalanx team designed probes to cover 90% of published microdeletions and microduplications associated with developmental and intellectual delay disorders.
