Swift Biosciences Presents Highly Sensitive, Highly Specific qPCR Mutation Detection Data at 18th International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference
Date:2/23/2011

re also well suited for emerging applications such blood based evaluation and monitoring of cancers, and genotyping small samples such as needle biopsies."

"We expect to begin commercializing the myT Primer qPCR assays later this year," said David Olson, PhD and CEO at Swift Biosciences. "At this time we are looking for industrial partners who would like to incorporate the myT Primers advantages into their kits or processes."

About myT™ Primer qPCR technology

Swift Biosciences has developed myT™ Primers, which enable highly selective qPCR assays for detection of cancer mutations. myT Assays are based on proprietary primers that have unique thermodynamic properties that make them highly sensitive to mismatch discrimination. A gating factor in the performance of allele-specific qPCR lies with the "detection" primer (the primer which hybridizes to DNA at the mutation site).  Detection primers must stringently discriminate between mutant and normal sequences to achieve high analytical sensitivity (minimum copy number of mutant DNA that generates a detectable signal) and high analytical specificity (maximum copy number of wild type DNA that does not result in a detectable signal). The distinctive physical characteristics of myT Primers enable both high sensitivity and specificity, making them ideal for cancer research and diagnostic research applications.  To date, allele-specific assays have been developed for the common mutations in the KRAS and BRAF genes. myT Primers work in conventional qPCR machines using standard single tube format.
