GenoFlow Beta thalassemia array test kit

(Southeast Asia)

Test detects 22 human beta globin mutations in blood or oral buccal samples. The kit identifies the most relevant mutations in the beta globin genes in the Southeast Asia region.

What is it?

Detects 22 human beta globin mutations
 
This test is a PCR / flow-through hybridization assay for detecting 22 human beta globin mutations in blood or oral buccal samples. 
 
The kit identifies the most relevant mutations in the beta globin genes in the Southeast Asia region.
 
The GenoFlow β-thalassemia Southeast Asia array test is both fast and cost-effective. Up to 16 samples can be tested simultaneously. 
 
This assay is used with the FT-PRO flow-through hybridization platform.
 
Each consumable assay kit is capable of 32 reactions.

Who is it for?

This kit is especially valuable to practitioners responsible for the health of populations of Southeast Asian ancestry. 
 
It’s also useful for researchers with an interest in inherited autosomal recessive blood disorders. 

Why is it different?

This highly sensitive test is currently the most cost-effective solution for identifying β-thalassemia mutations in the beta globin genes in people of Southeast Asian ancestry.
 
It’s fast and can deliver results three hours after extraction. Up to 16 samples can be tested simultaneously.
 
The test features sample quality control and is easy to apply.

Advantages

Complete – Genotypes 22 human beta globin mutations in a single assay
Fast – Delivers results in approximately 3 hours, tests up to 16 samples simultaneously
Easy – Requires almost no training. Results can be accurately interpreted at a glance
Cost effective – Lowest overall cost in market, and handles small batches

Need to know

This is a consumable assay kit, developed, supplied and supported by DiagCor. It requires a compatible instrument and a meticulous MDx workflow.
 
This array test kit is capable of a total of 32 reactions. 
 
Up to 16 samples can be processed in a test run. The capacity of the test chamber is four cassettes, each of which has four wells. 
 
All 32 reactions can be consumed in two test runs.

  • Works with

    FT-PRO flow-through hybridization system

    This state-of-the-art instrument performs fast, accurate DNA hybridization to identify the presence of a target molecule in a flexible sample size. Benefits include high efficiency, accurate results and low cost. The FT-PRO is compatible with GenoFlow array kits. 

    Capture-PRO image capture system

    This instrument captures images of DNA analysis from the DiagCor FT-PRO flow-through system and converts them into data. Images are transferred to a server for storage, analysis and reporting. This is a cost-effective way of managing and archiving large volumes of data from DNA-based testing and screening.

  • Workflow
    A key component in medium resolution DNA analysis, this flow-through hybridization device considerably speeds specimen throughput.
