DNAVision to Use Roche s AmpliChip CYP450 Test

NEW YORK, Nov. 3 (GenomeWeb News) - DNAVision will begin service of Roche Diagnostics' AmpliChip CYP450 test, the company said today.


The AmpliChip CYP450, which is built upon the Affymetrix microarray platform, analyzes the cytochrome P450 2D6 and 2C19 genotypes to help determine the appropriate dosages of medications for a variety of conditions, including pain medication, cardiac disease, cancer, and depression.


"DNAVision is proud to be chosen by Roche Diagnostics Belgium as the first European pharmacogenomic private testing laboratory to provide this first FDA approved DNA microarray test" said Arnaud Termonia, scientific advisor of DNAVision, in a statement.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared the AmpliChip CYP450 test for diagnostic use earlier this year.
