Agena Bioscience VeriDose CYP2D6 CNV Panel

Agena Bioscience has launched the VeriDose CYP2D6 CNV panel to provide PGx testing programs with a more accurate and efficient way to analyze CYP2D6 copy number. The research-use-only panel quantifies CYP2D6 copy number even in the presence of CYP2D6/CYP2D7 hybrid alleles, which cannot be detected by commonly used PGx technologies, the company said. The panel can also be run alongside Agena's PGX genotyping panels.
