Elucigene QST*R-PL Pregnancy Loss Kit IVD

The QST*R-PL Kit is for the routine diagnostic analysis of the six most common autosomal trisomies associated with pregnancy loss: trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome), trisomy 15, trisomy 16, trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome), trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) and trisomy 22. QST*R-PL is designed to be used on DNA extracted from the products of conception and fetally derived tissue. The assay has been developed as a single tube reaction. Accordingly, hands on time during assay set up is kept to a minimum. Assay set up time for 16 samples (1 injection on a 3130xl/3500xl Genetic Analyzer) takes approximately 20 mins. The PCR stage of the assay takes approximately 2 hrs 45 mins to complete, depending on platform in use. For a single injection (16 samples) sample preparation and injection on the 3130xl Genetic Analyzer takes approximately 60 mins from start to finish.The kit also includes X and Y chromosome markers and the TAF9L marker for the determination of sex status. The results obtained from QST*R-PL Kit will determine the aneuploidy status of the fetus and may be useful in the management of the consequences resulting from the spontaneous miscarriage and for modification of risk calculations for future pregnancies.

  • QST*R-PL contains 4 x STR markers for chromosomes 13, 15, 16, 18, 21, 22
  • QST*R-PL contains X specific counting marker TAF9
  • QST*R-PL contains X and Y specific markers AMEL and SRY
