Which tools and equipment do I need for performing GynTect®?

GynTect® is a PCR-based test, during which the methylation of certain DNA regions is detected. Prior to the performance of the PCR test the patient sample is treated chemically. You receive the Bisulfite conversion kit required for this chemical treatment from the GynTect® distributor. For the performance of the bisulfite treatment you need a heating block with cooling option, e.g. a simple thermocycler with a block for 0.5 ml reaction tubes. The GynTect® assay currently is established on the realtime-PCR platforms Abi7300 and Abi7500 (Life Technologies).
