"Dried Blood Spot Testing with AmplideX SMA Plus Kit Resolves SMN1 and SMN2 Exon 7 Copy Numbers and More"

Newborn screening for spinal muscular atrophy typically involves studying dried blood spot samples with a qPCR test for the presence or absence of SMN1, followed by a confirmatory diagnostic test from whole blood to confirm the absence of SMN1 and determine SMN2 copy number.

This poster from Asuragen demonstrates the feasibility of a single-reaction test to determine SMN1 and SMN2 copy numbers and identify disease modifier variants directly from dried blood spots in less than four hours, reducing turnaround time by simplifying the workflow, potentially enabling earlier treatment and improved patient outcomes.
