Aberrant Cell Fraction Estimation in NxClinical 5.0

NxClinical has very strong visualization tools which is important for cytogeneticists - a reviewer can easily view the allele patterns and estimate % aberrant cells. But NxClinical 5.0 makes this even easier by automatically performing this calculation on a per event basis. The software also uses a user-defined threshold to mark events as mosaic or not. The software looks at event-specific aberrant cell fraction using both the Log R value as well as BAF (where available). This approach uses platform-dependent scaling so that the correct calculation can be applied to samples from multiple platforms (e.g. ThermoFisher, Illumina, CNV from NGS).
