Multiplex PCR/Mass spectroscopy Panel for Screening Oncogene Mutations in Solid Tumors


OHSU # 1653

Technology Overview
The developers have created a large panel of assays to detect oncogenic mutations in DNA from formalin-fixed/paraffin-embedded tumors. Their latest Solid Tumor Panel consists of 496 assays that can detect 647 different mutations across 53 genes.  These materials consist of a series of PCR primers for amplifying gene regions of interest, and a second set of primers for mutation detection by primer extension reaction and mass spectroscopy readout.  An Excel-spreadsheet based tool for reading out the assay results is also part of the materials.
