Samples from patients that prove negative for DeltaF508 will be automatically routed to the Ambry Test: CF AMPLIFIED™ for the most comprehensive analysis available. With a detection rate of approximately 99%, no other test can identify more mutations than the Ambry Test: CF AMPLIFIED™.

Ambry Genetics President & CEO, Charles L. M. Dunlop, explains: "508 FIRST™ is the optimum start point for complete gene analysis of any Cystic Fibrosis patient. 508 FIRST™ provides a quick and affordable screen for the most likely positive result, with the security and confidence of full gene analysis in a single test."

"The certainty that comes with precise genetic results can reduce the cost of further tests, and help doctors provide the most effective care," Mr. Dunlop said. Because Ambry Genetics treats both phases of 508 FIRST™ as a single test, the process of arriving at definitive diagnosis of CF is covered more easily by insurance.
