Elucigene CF UK Panel

Since the discovery of the CFTR gene in 1989, more than 1700 mutations and variants in the gene have been described. Many of these mutations are ‘private’, having been described only in one patient and/or family. Routine testing for all possible mutations is neither feasible nor cost effective and is therefore confined to testing for the most common mutations. The Elucigene CF UK panel is designed to extend the coverage of Elucigene CF-EU2v1 specifically to address the most common mutations found in UK populations. The Elucigene CF UK panel identifies 11 additional mutations in total.

Elucigene CF UK Panel is a multiplexed assay comprising a single PCR. In a single reaction mix both mutant and wild type alleles are detected for eleven mutations within the CFTR gene. In the CF UK Panel assay, mutant alleles are visualised as blue amplicon peaks and wild type alleles are visualised as green amplicon peaks. The internal amplification control markers (non-cystic fibrosis) found in CF-EU2v1 are also included in the CF UK Panel mix. These are visualised as red amplicon peaks and are used to monitor the efficiency of sample amplification and aid patient identification when running the CF UK Panel alongside the Elucigene CF-EU2v1 assay.
