Simvastatin PGX Kit | 2016

Genetic Study of Simvastatin Pharmacogenetics

REF: 5022

Fully Optimised and integrated with the iPLEX® MassARRAY® system, from logo-agena

The Simvastatin PGX Kit | 2016 is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic device (IVD) for genotyping a panel of 3 genetic variants, in human genomic DNA samples, and predicting the risk of statin induced myopathy in patients beginning statin therapy, especially simvastatin therapy.

Genetic Kits contain ready-to-use and fully optimised amplification and extension primer mixes, and an external control.

Simvastatin PGX Kit | 2016 evaluates the genetic variants associated with decreased plasma clearance of simvastatin, and therefore higher risk of myopathy. Simvastatin dosage can hence be adjusted in a personalised fashion, depending on the genotype data.
