Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD)

AATD is a hereditary disorder.

  • Associated with an increased risk of developing pulmonary and/or liver disease
  • The American and European Thoracic/Respiratory Societies (ATS/ERS) recommend that all chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients be tested for AATD
  • AATD remains underdiagnosed

A1AT Genotyping Test

Simultaneous multiplex reaction in a single well.

  • Combination of reagents and software
  • High-throughput 192 tests
  • Based on Luminex technology
  • Automatic generation of reports
  • LIS connectivity
  • Validated on saliva, dry blood spot, and whole blood samples
