Canon BioMedical Novallele Copy Number Assays for SMA Research
Canon BioMedical has launched Novallele copy number assays for spinal muscular atrophy research. The PCR-based method only requires a thermocycler capable of high-resolution melting (HRM) and a single sample replicate. The assays are optimized to work with multiple HRM-capable thermocyclers and numerous DNA extraction methods. With some thermocyclers, results can be generated in under an hour, Canon said.
