What technologies are used by the KRAS and EGFR PCR kits?
The KRAS PCR and EGFR PCR kits use a special technology for mutation detection. Mutations are detected with high sensitivity using the Amplification Refractory Mutation System (ARMS). PCR is used to amplify the mutation, and amplification is signalled using Scorpions technology. Further information on these technologies can be obtained from QIAGEN Technical Service.
