Fragile X syndrome is an inherited genetic condition causing a number of developmental issues. These issues include learning disabilities and cognitive impairment. In general males are more severely affected by fragile x syndrome than females.
The Adellgene® Fragile X Screening assay makes determination by fluoresent fragment analysis of the FMR1 CGG triplet repeat region. Also features:
-Detection of healthy and premutated alleles: 10 to 200 CGG triplet repeats.
-Accurate sizing by capillary electrophoresis in genetic analyzer.
-Successful PCR amplification of the CGG triplet repeat region in spite of its extremely high GC-content.
This assay is available in 48 tests size.
