Illumina offers accurate and comprehensive solutions for cystic fibrosis testing. Cystic fibrosis (CF) affects more than 70,000 children and adults worldwide.1 With no known cure, prevention and early diagnosis are crucial.
Our next-generation sequencing (NGS) assays provide visibility into the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene for molecular diagnostic testing of cystic fibrosis. Ultimately, this information can be used to make informed family planning decisions and choose optimized treatments, leading to a better quality of life.
Illumina products for cystic fibrosis testing are FDA-cleared and validated to meet stringent performance criteria. Both assays are intended to be used on the MiSeqDx instrument, the first FDA-cleared NGS platform for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) testing.
Illumina sequencing by synthesis (SBS) chemistry is the most widely adopted NGS technology, responsible for generating more than 90% of the world’s sequencing data.4 Clinical laboratories can leverage this proven method to achieve reliable results in cystic fibrosis testing.
