Karyotyping (G-Banded) Service

G-banding is a technique used in cytogenetics to produce a visible karyotype by staining condensed chromosomes. It is useful for the identification of structural abnormalities through the photographic representation of the entire chromosome complement. Creative Bioarray has performed many karyotyping (banded chromosome analysis) services for cell line authentication and some specific research. In providing karyotyping information, we can promote the advancement of biology projects.

We have broad expertise in banded chromosome analysis for a wide variety of mammalian species (human, mouse, rat, cow, hamsters, dog, etc.), and our experience includes analysis of live animals and established adult and embryonic stem cell lines. The standard cytogenetic analysis can be customized to your need if you have specific requirements different from or those here.
