Mutation Analysis

Doing Mutation Analysis

Several years of  in house assay development and validation experience enable Targos to produce accurate, precise and specific results. Our assays are optimized to work on ‘real life’ patient samples and have low drop-out rates. Currently, we offer commercially available tests on the Roche Cobas® 4800 platform and on QIAGEN's Rotor-Gene Q. Custom assays can also be developed upon request.

Targos mutation analysis services Include: (a) Extraction of genomic DNA from patient samples (fresh, fixed, and/or paraffin-embedded) (b) mutation analysis based by qPCR using mutation specific primers. Alternatively, we also offer Sanger and next-generation sequencing (See sequencing section for details).
Turn-around time for mutation analysis is 3-5 business days. For larger batches and service in the context of archiving or shipment of samples, please contact us at
