ALK Wild Type Reference Standard (Discontinued)


Genomic DNA

The ALK Wild Type Reference Standard is a highly-characterized, biologically-relevant quality control material used to assess the performance of assays that detect somatic mutations, such as Sanger and qPCR sequencing assays.

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

Technical Information
Horizon DNA standards eliminate the variability associated with patient-derived reference standards, and avoid the hassle of sourcing, characterizing, and documenting your own cell line mixes. The standard is provided at an allelic frequency of 50%, and may be diluted using the corresponding wild-type standard to generate a lower allelic frequencies for limit of detection studies.

Horizon’s Base-Seq products are all derived from human cell lines, and are high molecular weight DNA. This format ensures that they may be applied to a wide-range of assays including qPCR, Sanger sequencing, next-generation sequencing, mass array, and more.
