Pillar® ONCO/Reveal™ BRCA1 & BRCA2 plus CNV Panel

The ONCO/Reveal BRCA1 & BRCA2 plus CNV Panel is designed for the detection of exon-level copy number variation (CNV) across the entire coding region of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes (as well as 10bp flanking introns). The assay is designed with shorter amplicons to allow for detection of mutations from FFPE samples, while also being compatible with intact genomic DNA from blood samples.

Panel highlights

Full BRCA1 and BRCA2 CDS plus flanking sequences

Detects exon level CNVs, SNVs, and indels

Detection down to 1% VAF even with low sample input/quality

Robust to FFPE degradation

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
