Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), ranking as the most fatal genetic disease of children under 2 years old, is an inherited disease caused by a faulty or missing gene called SMN1 that leads to severe muscle weakness and often early death. Tianlong's Human Survival Motor Neuron 1 (SMN1) Gene Detection Kit is used for the screening of SMN1 gene carriers and the auxiliary diagnosis of SMN1 patients, which can effectively avoid birth defects, and assist healthcare professionals to give timely diagnosis of SMA in a child.
