BRAF Mutation Detection Kit

BRAF, a kinase-encoding gene from the RAS/RAF/MEK/ERK pathway, recently has being studied in all malignant melanomas, including thyroid cancer, malignant melanoma, ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer. The most common mutations in BRAF occur at the valine at residue 600 (V600) within exon 15, and may be a predictive biomarker for limited response to anti-EGFR therapy.

​Medaysis Ultra-Sensitive BRAF Mutation Detection Kit is a highly specific and sensitive PCR technique that is able to detect common somatic mutations in the BRAF gene (V600). 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 BRAF gene from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues, fresh or frozen tissues, cell smears, fine needle biopsies (FNA) or pleural effusion specimens.

Features 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
