Adellgene® Myotonic Dystrophy

Myotonic dystrophy, also known as Steinert’s disease, is the most common form of muscular dystrophy found in adults currently.

The Adellgene® Myotonic Dystrophy Screening assay detects the number of CTG triplet repeats in the 3 untranslated region of the DMPK gene located on chromosome 19  as an in vitro diagnostic.  The technology is based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR: polymerase chain reaction) of extracted genomic DNA and purified from peripheral blood followed by fluorescence analysis.

This assay is available in 16 tests size.
