To aid in the identification of patients eligible for treatment and to monitor response to therapy, DiaCarta offers QClamp® NRAS Mutation Detection Test in plasma and Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) samples which can lead to improved outcomes in cancer patients. The QClamp® NRAS Mutation Detection Test is an in vitro diagnostic real-time qualitative PCR assay for the detection of somatic mutations in and near codons 12 and 13 in Exon 2, codons 59 and 61 in Exon 3, and codons 117 and 146 in Exon 4 in the human NRAS gene, using purified DNA extracted from FFPE or plasma.
Powered by XNA technology, the QClamp® NRAS Mutation Detection Test has achieved a much higher analytical sensitivity compared to other commercial qPCR kits and other cancer gene mutation detection methods. QClamp® NRAS Mutation Detection Test is able to detect reliably 0.1% to 0.5% mutant DNA out of wild-type DNA for targeted mutations, providing lower detection limit compared with competition due to a strict enrichment of mutant sequences while suppressing amplification of wild-type sequences.
QClamp® NRAS Mutation Detection Test is CE/IVD-certified.
Advantages of QClamp® NRAS Mutation Detection Test
Detect reliably 0.1% to 0.5% VAF mutant DNA out of wild-type DNA for targeted mutations
LOW INPUT DNA
Minimum 5ng input DNA per reaction. Less than 2 tubes of blood (10mL each) needed for cfDNA
Covering all relevant somatic mutations in 6 codons of NRAS oncogene
Less than 4 hours of assay run time
Validated on the most common qPCR machines with minimized variability
NRAS Mutation and Cancer
Introduction of NRAS Gene
NRAS, like KRAS and HRAS, is a member of the RAS family of GTPases and plays a central role in the MAPK
NRAS Gene Detection May Benefit the Immunotherapy
Immune therapy has become the mainstay for treatment for advanced melanoma. It has been suggested that NRAS mutations is correlated with increased benefit from immunotherapies. Detection of NRAS mutations may provide useful information for immunotherapy strategies.
Streamlined Workflow for QClamp® NRAS Mutation Detection Tests
Step 1: DNA Isolation & Quantification
Extract DNA from FFPE or plasma using a commercial DNA extraction kit followed by measuring the concentration using fluorometric analysis
Step 2: set up qpcr
Mix the assay reagents, load into PCR plate, add controls and extracted DNA ~ 30-60 minutes
Step 3: Amplification parameters
Enter amplification parameters on
qPCR instrument, load PCR plate
and start the run ~ 2.5 hours
Step 4: Data analysis
Determine the presence or absence
of mutations according to the Cq
value cutoffs ~ 15 minutes

Most frequent NRAS mutations detected by QClamp® NRAS Mutation Detection Test
|Exon||Amino Acid Change||Nucleotide change||Cosmic No.|
Analytical sensitivity in plasma: Detects as low as 0.125% VAF mutant DNA in a 5ng input
cfDNA extracted from plasma of a colorectal cancer patient with known NRAS G12D mutation was diluted in 5ng/μl of wild-type cfDNA. VAF of the sample was verified by Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS). The NRAS c12 assay is able to detect as low as 2 NRAS G12D mutant gene copies (0.125% VAF) in the background of wild-type cfDNA.
Analytical sensitivity in FFPE: Detects as low as 0.125% VAF mutant DNA in a 5ng input
DNA extracted from FFPE of a colorectal cancer patient with known NRAS G12D mutation was diluted in 5ng/μl of wild-type FFPE DNA. VAF of the sample was verified by NGS. The NRAS c12 assay is able to detect as low as 2 NRAS G12D mutant gene copies (0.125% VAF) in the background of wild-type FFPE DNA.
