Note re: HPRT/APRT Assay:  Posted 17-Jul-2022
We are having trouble procuring supplies of some substrates used in the assay of hypoxanthine-guanine (HPRT/HGPRT) and adenine (APRT) phosphoribosyl transferase recently.  We are in the process of developing and validating a new method using readily available substrates and we anticipate this process to take at least three months.  Please note this significant delay in assay turnaround over the next months.
