The KRAS Wild Type Reference Standard is a highly-characterized, biologically-relevant quality control material used to assess the performance of assays that detect somatic mutations, such as Sanger and qPCR sequencing assays.
Horizon FFPE standards eliminate the variability associated with patient-derived reference standards, and avoid the hassle of sourcing, characterizing, and documenting your own cell line mixes. Using a proprietary method of mild fixation and homogenous paraffin embedding, we generate highly-reproducible and consistent FFPE curls. With any commercially available FFPE extraction protocol, our standards yield high molecular weight DNA. This format ensures that they may applied to a wide-range of assays including qPCR, Sanger sequencing, next-generation sequencing, mass array, and more.
With this product you are able to:
Evaluate of workflow integrity from pre-analytical DNA extraction to post-analytical bioinformatics
Analyze the sensitivity of your workflow
Optimize and validate new cancer panels and routinely monitor the performance of your assay
