Multiplicom Somatic 2 MASTR Plus Kit
Multiplicom has released the Somatic 2 MASTR Plus kit for the detection of actionable somatic mutations in the EGFR, ERBB2, PIK3CA, PIK3R1, and PTEN genes, extending its somatic MASTR product line that already covers KRAS, NRAS, BRAF, cKIT, and PDGFRA. The somatic MASTR products are designed for amplification of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue-derived DNA. The kit requires only a limited amount of DNA and all mutations are analyzed in a single sequencing run. The quality of the DNA extracted from the FFPE tissue and the amount required per test can best be determined using Multiplicom's add-on QC Plex test, the company said.
