GT AZFScreen Plus

SKU: GT-11302 Categories: ,

GT AZFScreen Plus kits has more markers to detect AZF and 47 XXY trisomy or Klinefelter syndrome by having several X-chromosome STR, segmental duplication, sex-typing markers.

GT AZFScreen Plus

GT AZFScreen Plus kit is developed for the detection of Y chromosome microdeletions and Klinefelter Syndrome, the two most frequent genetic causes of infertility in men. This kit includes 28 markers (16 STS markers, 4 SD [Segmental Duplication] and 8 STR [Short Tandem Repeat]). Primer designing followed European Molecular Genetics Quality Network guidelines.

Infertility is regarded as a critical problem for most couples. It affects 15-20 % of

reproductive-aged couples worldwide. Male infertility contributes to about 20-30 % of these cases, out of which Y chromosome microdeletions cause 5-10 %. About 3 % of infertile men and 14 % of non-obstructive azoospermia men are affected by Klinefelter Syndrome.

The GT AZFScreen plus kit having 8 X chromosome specific STR markers as well as two segmental duplications (7/X and 18/X) can detect Klinefelter Syndrome (47, XXY) and other X or Y chromosome aneuploidies (e.g., 47, XXX, 48, XXXY, 48, XXYY, 48, XXXX, etc.). GT AZFScreen Plus kit performance has been validated with extensive testing using Applied Biosystems™ 3500/xL and 3130/xl platforms for detection and analysis on more than 200 samples, either as normal, with Klinefelter Syndrome, deletions of AZFa, AZFb, AZFc, AZFd or any combination of these deletions on Y chromosome as well as other X chromosome aneuploidies. Please consult the GT AZFScreen Plus user manual for more detailed information.

GT AZFScreen Plus Premium Features

  • For rapid and accurate detection of deletions in any of AZF related regions on human Y chromosome as well as markers for accurate Klinefelter Syndrome detection;
