Toyobo RNA Analysis Kit
Toyobo of Japan is releasing RNA Analysis Kit, a product for full-length sequencing of total RNA from a single cell. The kit is based on a method called RamDA-seq that was developed by researchers at the Laboratory for Bioinformatics Research at the Riken Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research in Japan. The method enables RNA amplification with low bias and the comprehensive identification of RNA varieties and their amounts in a single cell. The kit will officially be launched on Sept. 30.
Yourgene Elucigene DPYD
UK-based Yourgene has launched the Elucigene DPYD assay, a CE-marked chemotoxicity diagnostic test that uses genotyping to identify cancer patients with dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) deficiency. The deficiency causes several and sometimes lethal side effects in patients treated with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), which is metabolized by the DPD enzyme, encoded by the DPYD gene. Elucigene DPYD, which tests for six common genetic variations, conforms with Clinical Pharmacogenetics Consortium guidelines, which recommend testing for four clinically relevant mutations.
