Targeted therapies for cancer have the potential for improved in treatment outcome and significant reduced in treatment cost. Identification and functional analysis of genetic mutations specific to certain type of tumor facilitate more effective treatment for cancer patient. One example is using KRAS mutation as an essential biomarker for predicting treatment in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer and colorectal cancer. Conventional techniques for identifying mutation involve intricate, laborious processes as well as expensive instrumentation. In this article, scientists represent a novel technology that offer simple, time-effective and inexpensive method for detecting point of mutations.
