GeneProof Enterovirus PCR Kit




The PCR kit is intended for detection of Enterovirus RNA by the real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method.

The Enterovirus detection consists in amplification of a single-copy 5' UTR RNA sequence and in measurement of fluorescence increase. The presence of Enterovirus is indicated by the increased FAM fluorophore fluorescence. An Internal Control (IC), which is a part of the PCR kit, is used as a control for the whole diagnostic process, i.e. RNA extraction efficiency, reverse-transcription step efficiency (transcription of RNA into cDNA) and PCR amplification efficiency (PCR inhibition). The IC positive amplification is detected in the HEX fluorophore fluorescence channel. The PCR kit is designed for in vitro diagnostics for qualitative and semiquantitative detection and it utilizes the "hot start" technology minimizing non-specific reactions and ensuring maximum sensitivity. Ready to Use MasterMix contains uracil-DNA-glycosylase (UDG) which eliminates possible contamination of the PCR with amplification products.
