Ordering Information

The Idylla™ KRAS Mutation Test, performed on the Biocartis Idylla™ system, is a fully automated, real-time PCR,  in vitro diagnostic test for the qualitative detection of

21 relevant KRAS mutations: 7 mutations in codons 12 and 13 (exon 2), 9 mutations in codons 59 and 61 (exon 3) and 5 mutations in codons 117 and 146 (exon 4).

The KRAS mutation test allows detection of KRAS mutations directly from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections in approximately 2 hours. 

Cases negative for KRAS mutations will be reflex tested for NRAS/BRAF mutations, also on the Idylla platform.
