BRAF V600E cfDNA Reference Standard Set



The BRAF V600E cfDNA Reference Standards are highly-characterized, biologically-relevant quality control materials used to assess the performance of cfDNA assays that detect BRAF V600E somatic mutations, including quantitative PCR, next-generation sequencing, and other novel assays.

With this panel you are able to:
• Analyze the sensitivity of your assay
• Gain certainty of the limit of detection
• Optimize and validate new protocols and routinely monitor the performance of your assay

Technical Information

Horizon cfDNA standards eliminate the variability associated with patient-derived reference standards, and avoid the hassle of sourcing, characterizing, and documenting your own biofluids or cell line mixes. The BRAF V600E cfDNA reference standards are provided as a Set at allelic frequencies of 5%, 1%, and 0.1%.

Horizon’s cfDNA products are all derived from human cell lines, and are fragmented to mimic the 160 bp average fragment size of patient-derived cfDNA. This format ensures that they may applied to a wide-range of cfDNA assays including quantitative PCR and next-generation sequencing. Batch-specific copy number values measured via ddPCR are provided with each Set.
