Asuragen to Launch the AmplideX® PCR/CE DMPK Kit and Present Growing Genetic Testing Portfolio at 2018 European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) Conference22.5.2018 12:00 | Pressemelding
Asuragen, Inc., a molecular diagnostics company delivering high-quality, easy to use products for complex testing in genetics and oncology, today announced the launch of the AmplideX® PCR/CE DMPK Kit* to simplify analysis of repeat expansions within the DMPK gene, which is implicated in myotonic dystrophy type I (DM1), also known as Steinert’s disease. DM1 is an inherited form of muscular dystrophy that affects the muscles as well as multiple other organ systems, and its severity is largely determined by the size of the CTG trinucleotide repeat expansion within the DMPK gene. These expansions commonly extend beyond a thousand CTG repeats and therefore have required the use of cumbersome Southern blot technology to estimate their size. “The AmplideX DMPK Kit represented a significant improvement over our existing process for analyzing large DMPK expansions,” said Doctor Sophie Rondeau, PharmD, PhD, and Professor Jean-Paul Bonnefont, MD, PhD, of the Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital in Par
