Avoiding False Negative and False Positive DNA Tests with VariAssure

Courtagen's VariAssure® confirmation process eliminates false positive and false negative allele bias. Our proprietary verification process utilizes a second unique equally sensitive assay designed to confirm variants in the mitochondrial genome. These alterations must be detected in both independent assays in order to be considered confirmed.


Combined with deep heteroplasmy analysis, our VariAssure® assay allows us to identify and verify small insertions, deletions, and structural rearrangements associated with mitochondrial dysfunction that other, less sensitive confirmatory methods could potentially miss.
