CAH StripAssay®

The CAH StripAssay® offered by Oasis Diagnostics Corporation is a cost effective tool for the confirmation of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) early in the disease cycle to to minimize emotional stress for parents and economic burden. Neonatal 17-OHP testing is highly susceptible to false positive results, making genetic testing an important confirmatory tool for early and reliable CAH diagnosis. The CAH StripAssay® is based on detection of the CYP21A2 gene in dry blood samples.

CAH StripAssay® 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.
