Fusion Gene Analysis

A Comprehensive Set of Fusion Genes

The nCounter Leukemia Fusion Gene Expression Assay Kit allows researchers to profile a comprehensive set of fusion genes which result from balanced translocations in different leukemia sub-types. In addition to leukemia fusion genes, the kit includes probes for 11 wild-type genes involved in the different translocations, 12 leukemia-related biomarkers, and 2 normalization genes. The 50-plex assay-kit facilitates cutting-edge research by leveraging the advantages of the nCounter analysis system to provide robust analysis of a variety of specimen types, including FFPE, with less hands-on time than any other method available.

Product Highlights

  • 25 fusion genes and 23 other biomarkers in a single reaction
  • Compatible with FFPE samples
  • 5 minutes hands-on time for 12 samples
  • Cost-effective

Leukemia Junction Probes Target the Unique Sequence Spanning the Fusion Junction

Leukemia Fusion Junction

In order to differentiate fusion genes with the same downstream exon, the leukemia fusion gene assay utilizes Junction Probes which target the unique sequence spanning the fusion junction of the two exons. The design of the Junction Probes is illustrated on the major and minor BCR-ABL fusion transcripts (Capture Probes and Reporter Probes are denoted CP and RP respectively).

The nCounter Leukemia Fusion Gene Expression Assay Kit is offered for research use only (RUO) and is ideal for characterization of retrospectively or prospectively collected specimens, cell lines, and other sample types where a comprehensive profile of fusion gene isoforms and leukemia biomarkers may lead to important biological insights.
