NMPA granted two Innovation Approvals in February.
- Suzhou Beikang: Pre-implantation chromosome aneuploidy detection kit (semiconductor sequencing)
- Xiamen Feishuo: Human EGFR / KRAS / BRAF / HER2 / ALK / ROS1 gene mutation detection kit (semiconductor sequencing)
In the Approval Notice for the aneuploidy kit, NMPA mentions the product “establishes a method for detecting pre-implantation chromosomal abnormalities by using embryo blastocyst stage cells, and adopts single-cell expansion technology to improve the alignment, uniformity and coverage of sequencing results; The analysis model of ploidy detection data reduces the analysis bias between samples caused by amplification and shortens the detection cycle to one day.”
For the EGFR / KRAS / BRAF / HER2 / ALK / ROS1 kit, NMPA says the product “is based on a common PCR platform that combines specifically modified primers and RingCap loop-mediated amplification technology to detect mutant genes contained in DNA / RNA samples. Using specific modified primers for PCR amplification of the target sequence, meanwhile, using RingCap loop-mediated amplification technology to modify the end of the amplified product, linking the specific sequence ends, combined with a special PCR reaction program and the use of RingCap enzyme, Library construction of target sequences in sample DNA / RNA for high-throughput sequencing is achieved on common PCR platforms to achieve accurate detection of multi-gene and multi-target mutations.”
