The Infinium OncoArray-500K contains 500,000 SNPs with a genome-wide backbone of 250,000 tag SNPs. Additional SNPs include genetic variants associated with breast, colorectal, lung, ovarian, and prostate cancers plus SNPs covering ancestry, quantitative traits, pharmacogenetics, and fine-mapping of common cancer susceptibility loci. To support additional research requirements, the Infinium OncoArray-500K can be tailored to incorporate up to 120,000 custom beadtypes.*
The Infinium OncoArray-500K was developed in collaboration with leading experts from the OncoArray consortium†, and draws on many of the features of the successful Collaborative Oncological Gene-environment Study (iCOGS) array1. Designed with candidate SNPs identified by the consortium, the OncoArray provides a cost-effective means to assess candidate variants potentially associated with cancer risk.
The Infinium OncoArray-500K uses a 24-sample high-throughput screening (HTS) BeadChip to enable maximum throughput, productivity, and genotyping accuracy. Using the proven iScan System, the Infinium OncoArray-500K is designed to combine affordability with high-density content, providing insight into the relationship between gene variants and cancer predisposition in five of the most prevalent cancers.
