Tm Bioscience has rolled out its Tag-It Mutation Detection Kit for P450-2D6.
The test initially targets mutations related to coagulation and cystic fibrosis in the cytochrome P450 drug-metabolizing genes. Additional tests will follow “as more genetic markers gain clinical acceptance,” Tm Bioscience said.
The kit will test for 13 variants in the P450-2D6 gene. In addition to point mutations, the kit will identify patients with deletions and patients with multiple copies of the gene.
