FiberProbes® HNPCC 

Our aim is to provide an appropriate tool to researchers working on Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC)

The HNPCC Genomic Morse Code set allows the identification and characterization of the major structural variations including anomalies occurring in flanking regions of the MMR genes. Thereby, the undetected or improperly characterized complex rearrangements can be clearly identified with the Molecular Combing technology.

By powerful quantitative analysis, this method is likely to detect mutations in the common genomic region of the PMS2 gene with a distinction from its pseudogene.


Molecular combing gives you clear results with confident interpretation and visualization of the MMR genes and EPCAM
