Cystic fibrosis testing can be challenging for laboratories. Even though screening is recommended for all ethnicities, it can be difficult to provide reliable results for everyone, since most CFTR assays were designed based on outdated, ethnically-homogeneous data. Additionally, some assay workflows can be time-consuming, cost-prohibitive, or cumbersome for labs to use.

In this event, Asuragen is pleased to unveil the AmplideX® PCR/CE CFTR Kit*, which is designed to provide the broadest coverage** of the U.S. population of any available targeted kit, with an easy-to-implement workflow. Recent large-scale diverse datasets informed assay design to bridge coverage gaps left by other targeted assays, while the application of AmplideX technology streamlines the testing process.

Practical CFTR Testing To Address Coverage Gaps with the AmplideX® PCR/CE CFTR Kit*

John N. Milligan, PhD
Senior Manager, Research & Development, Asuragen



Learn how recent large-scale diverse population studies provide a greater understanding of the diversity of CFTR variants and how this data has informed the AmplideX PCR/CE CFTR Kit* design to provide the broadest coverage** of any targeted CFTR testing kit.

Comprehensive Yet Streamlined Genetic Testing with
AmplideX® Technology


Ninad Pendsé, MBA
Senior Product Manager, Asuragen


This webinar will present the relevant genetic information needed in three common carrier screening genes (CFTR, SMN1/2, and FMR1), as well as how AmplideX assays provides this information with simple, complementary workflows made for real-world use.
