BRCA 1/2 Germline Mutation

The Pillar Biosciences SLIMamp Hereditary Cancer Panel: BRCA1/2 is an accurate, fast solution for sequencing the entire BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Every base in the coding exons is 100% covered, plus 20bp flanking regions. The assay calls all SNVs and small and medium indels. Multiplex your samples coming from whole blood for up to 96 samples per run.


  • Automatable single tube prep
  • Total time is 6 hours
  • Under 2 hours hands-on time
  • Greater than 99.5% assay sensitivity and specificity
