（Real-time PCR assay）
BRAF gene plays an important role in signal transduction involving cell proliferation, by regulating various kinds of cell physiological activities, such as growth, division , death etc.
BRAF gene is the second transmitter in the EGFR signaling pathway. When BRAF gene mutations occurs, the signal pathway will be permanently auto-activated, resulting in excessive cell proliferation and differentiation, thus, which may lead to EGFR-TKI drug ineffectiveness. Mutations of BRAF occurred in many cancers such as malignant melanoma, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, thyroid cancer, liver cancer,etc.
The NCCN Guidelines for Colorectal Cancer (2019 Edition) recommends that all patients with metastatic colorectal cancer can be genotyped for B-raf and K-ras mutations.

B-raf Gene Mutation
ABI 7500 etc.
Pleural and ascites
1. Patients with suspected Lynch syndrome can be Screening by BRAF genetic detection.
2. Can be used for the identification of diagnosis for thyroid cancer, assessing the prognosis for malignant melanoma and colorectal cancer.
3. For patients treated with BRAF and EGFR inhibitors, detection of BRAF gene mutation status can be used to adjust diagnosis and treatments.
