NGS testing in clinical practice - what to expect
“Using the Devyser Thalassemia kit, we can reduce both response time and costs. One single assay provides all the information we need.”
- Dr. Veysel Sabri Hancer, Professor, Istinye University, Genetic Diseases Diagnostic Centre, Istanbul, Turkey
An estimated 5.2 percent of individuals worldwide carry a genetic mutation that causes thalassemia. Research indicates that 1.1 percent of couples worldwide are at risk of having children with a hemoglobin disorder, and that 2.7 children out of 1,000 conceptions are affected.
Family history and geographic origin can be significant risk factors. Thalassemia primarily affects people with Mediterranean, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle Eastern ancestry.
Diagnostic DNA tests can identify the genetic mutation associated with thalassemia. Detection often takes place during pregnancy or soon after birth. Some countries offer routine screening for thalassemia to all pregnant women.
Tests can also be performed at any age to check for thalassemia or to see if an individual is a carrier.
Our one-tube test solution significantly reduces lab turnaround time and simplifies the clinical workflow for genetic testing of thalassemia in a single assay.
By eliminating the need for multiple parallel testing protocols, we have successfully replaced traditional methods with one test to meet growing laboratory demand for rapid, convenient screening.
