Apo E StripAssay®

The Apo E StripAssay® is for the identification of apolipoprotein (apo) E isoforms E2, E3 and E4 based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and reverse-hybridization.

Apo E StripAssays® Brochure

  • Kits are based on reverse-hybridization of biotinylated PCR products.
  • Minimal equipment required (thermal cycler, shaking water bath).
  • Technology combines probes for mutations and controls in a parallel array of allele-specific oligonucleotides.
  • Functions using immobilized oligos on a teststrip.
  • Strips show mutations by enzymatic color reaction visible to the naked eye.
  • Proprietary software package (Evaluator™) that aids in data interpretation, storage, and archiving.
