PGX-CYP2C19 StripAssay®

The CYP2C19 gene has variations which can cause different concentrations of drugs and / or drug metabolites to build up inside the body. This can cause numerous issues including toxicity, adverse reactions, or reduced drug efficacy. The PGX-CYP2C19 StripAssay® is simple and cost effective kit for the identification of the genetic variations in the CYP2C19 gene to determine reduced or increased activity of cytochrome P450 isoenzyme CYP2C19.

PGX-CYP2C19 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.
