Assay Kit for Spinal Muscular Atrophy


PerkinElmer announces that the US FDA has authorized the marketing of its EONIS SCID-SMA assay kit for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use by certified laboratories for the simultaneous detection of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) in newborns. The EONIS Platform utilizes real-time PCR technology to screen for both SMA and SCID using a single dried blood spot sample, combining DNA extraction and multiplexing. When combined with PerkinElmer’s JANUS liquid handler, the system’s workflow is designed to provide automation and efficiency, and can be configured to a laboratory’s individual requirements and throughput. Other components of the platform include the EONIS DNA Extraction Kit and EONIS Analysis Software.
