MRC Holland SALSA digitalMLPA
MRC Holland has released SALSA digitalMLPA, a novel technique that enables the simultaneous detection of up to 1,000 copy number variants. It combines MRC Holland's proprietary Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification (MLPA) technology for target amplification with next-generation sequencing, using the company's Coffalyser digital MLPA analysis software. Up to 192, and soon up to 384, digitalMLPA samples can be analyzed in parallel. The first digitalMLPA assay available is D001 Hereditary Cancer Panel 1, which targets 28 genes associated with various hereditary cancers.
