The TRUPCR® KRAS PCR Kit (K-RAS Kit) is an in vitro diagnostic test intended for the qualitative detection of KRAS somatic mutations in genomic DNA extracted from fresh, frozen or formalin fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue. The TRUPCR® KRAS PCR Kit is based on allele specific amplification and is achieved by ARMS PCR. Taq DNA polymerase is extremely effective at distinguishing between a match and a mismatch at the 3’-end of a PCR primer. The kit is designed to selectively amplify mutant specific sequences in samples that contain a mixture of wild-type and mutated DNA. The most common mutations are found in codons 12, 13 and 61. The detection is achieved using fluorescent probes labelled with FAM and HEX. The TRUPCR® KRAS PCR Kit is composed of 11 assays for the detection of the KRAS mutations and a reference control gene of KRAS region without any known polymorphism / mutation.
