​ASXL1 gene, Somatic mutations in the additional sex comb-like 1 (ASXL1), are involved in the regulation or recruitment of the Polycomb-group repressor complex (PRC) and trithorax-group (trxG) activator complex. Recently, ASXL1 gene profiling has been studied in various types of diseases, which is also considered as a novel marker which may be a risk factor related with the prevalence and prognostic of myelodysplastic syndromes. In addition, more and more studies indicate that ASXL1 mutations may be associated with a poor outcome.

Medaysis Ultra-Sensitive ASXL1 Mutation Detection Kit is a highly specific and sensitive PCR technique that is able to detect common somatic mutations in the ASXL1 gene. Used with Sanger sequencing, it can detect less than 1% (as little as 20 ng to 100 ng of) mutant genes mixed with the wild-type.  It is designed to amplify ASXL1 gene from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues, fresh or frozen tissues, cell smears, fine needle biopsies (FNA) or pleural effusion specimens. 

The feature of Medaysis mutation detection kit:
1. Detect known and unknown mutation in target Exons
2. Highly specific and sensitive mutation enrich technology
3. Open system and easy to be done
4. Minimal sample size
5. No microdissection required
