Developed a DNA chip to better detect and lead the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia

Researchers from the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS) and the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, in collaboration with qGenomics, have developed a DNA chip, or array, to analyze the genome and identify genetic abnormalities in chronic lymphocytic leukemia. This chip allows overcoming the limitations for the detection of changes of the current techniques, such as fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), and can be used for a more accurate diagnosis of the disease.
