Updated version of Congenital Stationary Night Blindness genetic test is now available

Asper Biotech, in collaboration with scientific partners, has updated Congenital Stationary Night Blindness (CSNB) genetic test. The new version includes two additional genes – GRK1 and TRPM1, associated with Congenital Stationary Night Blindness. Now the CSNB microarray covers the analysis of 11 genes – RHO, PDE6B, GNAT1, CABP4, GRM6, SAG, NYX, CACNA1F, CACNA2D, GRK1, TRPM1 – and detects 159 mutations instead of 126 of the earlier version.

List of diseases covered by the panel

Lab method: NGS panel with CNV analysis

TAT: 6-9 weeks

Specimen requirements: 2-4 ml of blood with anticoagulant EDTA

1 µg DNA in TE, AE or pure sterile water at 100-250 ng/µl
The A260/A280 ratio should be 1.8-2.0. DNA sample should be run on an agarose gel as a single band, showing no degradation, alongside with a quantitative DNA marker.

Indications for genetic testing:
1. Confirmation of clinical diagnosis
2. Carrier testing for at-risk family members
3. Genetic counseling

Congenital Stationary Night Blindness (CSNB) consists of a group of eye disorders clinically characterized by vision impairment under dim light conditions, nystagmus, refractive error, or retinal changes. Different types of disorder can be inherited in an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked recessive manner.
