GT-HapScreen Dystrophin kit is the unique diagnostic kit which can be used to detect genetic diseases and screen the autosomal markers in a single reaction!
The GT-HapScreen Dystrophin kit is developed to detect Duchenne or Becker Muscular Dystrophy. The kit functions on the principle based on STR markers and QF PCR technique to detect carrier or to be patient by linkage analysis. Use of STR markers makes prenatal diagnosis more accurate and reliable.
Kit components include multiplex PCR primers which are designed from a dystrophin gene. This gene is used commonly in carrier detection and prenatal diagnosis of Duchenne or Becker Muscular Dystrophy. STR markers designed from 6 regions that covers the upstream, downstream and intron of the dystrophin gene.
This kit is optimised to use DNA samples purified from blood, amniotic fluid, and chorionic villus (CVS).
Along with Duchenne or Becker Muscular Dystrophy detection the GT-HapScreen Dystrophin kit includes autosomal STR markers for Chromosome 21, 18, 13, X and Y.
These markers provide extra advantages along with detection of diseases.
- Avoidance of sample cross-contamination
- Ruling out maternal cell contamination
- Paternity testing
- Chromosomal anueploidy detection
