AgioMol™CFTR – 18 Mutations is a diagnostic method used to identify mutations in the gene that causes cystic fibrosis (CF). CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis
Transmembrane Conductance Regulator) is a protein that regulates the transport of chloride and other ions across the cell membrane. Mutations in the CFTR gene can lead to cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects the respiratory, digestive, and reproductive systems. Molecular analysis of the CFTR gene is usually recommended for patients with borderline or normal sweat chloride concentrations, and genetic testing should always be offered along with appropriate counselling. AgioMol™CFTR – 18 Mutations screens for 18 mutations.
