TRUPCR® KRAS Mutation Kit

The TRUPCR® KRAS Mutation Kit (K-RAS Kit) is an in vitro diagnostic test intended for the qualitative detection of KRAS somatic mutations in the genomic DNA extracted from fresh, frozen or formalin fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue. The TRUPCR® KRAS Kit is based on allele specific amplification and is achieved by ARMS PCR. Taq DNA polymerase is extremely effective at distinguishing between a match and a mismatch at the 3’-end of a PCR primer. The kit is designed to selectively amplify mutant specific sequences in samples that contain a mixture of wild-type and mutated DNA. The most common mutations are found in codons 12, 13 and 61. The detection is achieved using fluorescent probes labelled with FAM and HEX. The TRUPCR® KRAS Kit is composed of 11 assays for the detection of the KRAS mutations and a reference control gene of KRAS region without any known polymorphism / mutation.

Key Features:

  • Selective Amplification of DNA containing mutation with ARMS Technology.
  • Sensitive to detect up to 1% mutation in KRAS gene.
  • Detects 22 different mutations in a single run.
  • Extraction control included to avoid false-negative results.
  • Rapid, more reliable, comprehensive and cost effective tests.
  • Easy work flow & compatible with various Real Time PCR instruments.

This kit can become useful in suggesting that all patients to be administered anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody therapy, should first be screened for KRAS mutations.
