PyroMark Q24 Tests are intended for molecular biology applications. These products are not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
PyroMark Q24 CpG LINE-1, PyroMark Q24 CpG MGMT, PyroMark Q24 CpG MLH1, and PyroMark Q24 CpG p16 enable highly reliable methylation results. In addition, a built-in control for bisulfite treatment improves accuracy and reproducibility of the results.
Prior to Pyrosequencing, a biotinylated PCR product is generated. Biotinylated PCR products are bound to streptavidin-coated Sepharose beads. The beads are then captured with the vacuum tool on the PyroMark Vacuum Workstation, and throroughly washed, generating single-stranded DNA suitable for sequencing. PyroMark Q24 Tests are predesigned assays for methylation analysis by Pyrosequencing. Each test includes the primers necessary for generating the biotinylated PCR product, as well as the primer for the Pyrosequencing reaction.
PyroMark Q24 Tests enable highly accurate, quantitative methylation and mutation (or SNP) analysis applicable in several fields of research, including cancer and epigenetics.
