DiaCarta QClamp Gene Mutation Detection Kits

DiaCarta has launched a suite of CE-IVD marked TaqMan qPCR assays using the firm's QClamp XNA-based technology. The QClamp Gene Mutation Detection Kits detect common cancer mutations in genes such as KRAS, NRAS, BRAF, EGFR, PIK3CA, and JAK2. The assays can be used on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue biopsies as well as on cell-free DNA from liquid biopsy samples. They have been validated on the Thermo Fisher Scientific Quantstudio 5, Roche LightCycler 480, and Bio-Rad CFX384 standard real-time qPCR instruments.
