Illumina has partnered with Vitrolife to sell our preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) and karyomapping products in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and the Americas. All sales and support transitioned to Vitrolife in early 2019. Both Illumina and Vitrolife are committed to ensuring a seamless transition.

HumanKaryomap-12 DNA Analysis Kit (24 samples)



The HumanKaryomap-12 DNA Analysis Kit is a comprehensive genome-wide test available at the single-cell level. It provides insight into the inheritance of single-gene defects.

This BeadChip array targets ~300,000 of the most informative markers in the genome for efficient genome-wide coverage1. Karyomapping uses biomarkers within the genome to assess the likelihood of an embryo carrying a gene variant involved in a single-gene disorder.

The karyomapping technique can create a complete map of the in vitro embryo chromosomes, giving researchers valuable insight into the role that genomics plays in the inheritance of single-gene defects. This method uses SNP (single nucleotide polymorphisms) array technology to confirm the presence or absence of a specific allele.

Example Workflow


The SureMDA Amplification System has been discontinued. The REPLI-g Single Cell Kit (QIAGEN) is the suggested replacement for use in karyomapping. Illumina remains committed to providing customers with high-quality support and service.
