Looking for Fragile X?

What have you been missing?
State-of-the-art technology to aid in the diagnosis
of Fragile X syndrome and associated disorders
Asuragens CE-marked AmplideX FMR1 PCR IVD Kit
detects CGG repeats in the FMR1 gene to aid in the
diagnosis of Fragile X syndrome and associated disorders,
such as Fragile X-Associated Primary Ovarian Insufficiency
(FXPOI) and Fragile XAssociated Tremor/Ataxia Syndrome

Accurately determines zygosity, first pass

High level of confidence for detection of all
expanded alleles 1, 2
Greater sensitivity than Southern Blot,
including detection of low abundance
mosaic alleles
Reduces Southern Blot testing to 2% or less
of all samples

Asuragens FMR1 PCR technologies identify a

wealth of molecular information in each sample.

Comprehensive genotyping reveals AGG
