BRAF StripAssay®

In as many as 8% of human tumors there is an occurrence of mutations in the BRAF gene. The BRAF StripAssay® is one of two efficient and cost effective StripAssay® solutions to detect this mutation when in rapid fashion.

  • Kits are based on reverse-hybridization of biotinylated PCR products.
  • Minimal equipment required (thermal cycler, shaking water bath).
  • Technology combines probes for mutations and controls in a parallel array of allele-specific oligonucleotides.
  • Functions using immobilized oligos on a teststrip.
  • Strips show mutations by enzymatic color reaction visible to the naked eye.
  • Proprietary software package (Evaluator™) that aids in data interpretation, storage, and archiving.
