PCR kit / FastSens® STD 3 Multiplex PCR Kit
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) DNA amplification technique is highly sensitive and Specific.
Which provides freedom in primer design and PCR optimization and maximizes PCR specificity and sensitivity by fundamentally blocking non-specific priming.
FastSens PCR Kit is a conventional PCR assay that permits the simultaneous amplification of target DNA and Internal Control (IC). The 2X Master Mix contains dNTP and enzyme for the specific amplification of the pathogens genome and 5X primer mixture for initiation of PCR.
In PCR, efficiency can be reduced by inhibitors that may be present in the clinical specimen.
The Internal Control has been added to the FastSens PCR Kit to identify processed specimens containing substances that may interfere with PCR amplification.
The Internal Control is a DNA plasmid. These features were selected to ensure equivalent amplification of the Internal Control and target DNA. The Internal Control is introduced into each amplification reaction and is co-amplified with target DNA from the clinical specimen.
In addition, the 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) system is used to extinguish the template activity of contaminated DNAs. 8-MOP is known to intercalate into double-stranded nucleic acids and form a covalent interstrand crosslink after photo activation with incident light of wavelength of 320-400 nm. Please discard the PCR tube after UV irradiation (365 nm) for 20 min amplified PCR products to prevent carry-over contamination.
2) Scan Target
Mycoplasma genitalium, Mycoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma urelyticum DNA
DNA extracted from Urine and Swab specimens or DNA extracted from infected cell
FastSens® STD 3 Multiplex PCR Kit is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic product for the detection of Mycoplasma genitalium, Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urelyticum DNA in various thermal cyclers.
