Illumina recommends that new customers use GenomeStudio for genotyping research applications or BlueFuse. BlueFuse is available only to users of the Illumina cytogenetic and IVF suite of technologies. KaryoStudio is still supported for existing users. Illumina remains committed to providing you with high-quality support and service.
KaryoStudio has been designed specifically for cytogeneticists who are using Illumina’s Infinium products to detect aberrations in the genome. KaryoStudio accepts Infinium data, automatically performs normalization, scans data for aberrations, displays the analyzed data allowing interpretation by the use, and generates reports useful for interpreting results. The software is geared towards finding aberrations that are 75kb and larger, and crossmatching those aberrations with information from public databases.
KaryoStudio is a stand-alone software application, separate from Illumina’s GenomeStudio software suite. If you would like to obtain comprehensive genotyping information from data generated using Infinium products, or perform a more customized data analysis, you may want to use the GenomeStudio Genotyping Module.
