Horizon Discovery 5-Fusion Multiplex FFPE RNA Reference Standard
Nov 30, 2017
The 5-Fusion Multiplex FFPE RNA Reference Standard from Horizon Discovery is a highly characterized, biologically relevant quality control material used to assess the performance of targeted NGS, RT-PCR, and RT-qPCR assays for gene fusions. Each FFPE curl is composed of a formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded cell line verified to contain EML4-ALK, CCDC6-RET, SLC34A2-ROS1, TPM3-NTRK1, and ETV6-NTRK3 fusions. Using the reference standard it is possible to evaluate workflow integrity from pre-analytical RNA extraction to fusion detection. Extractable RNA is at least 100 ng, the company noted.
