GeneProof Chlamydia pneumoniae PCR Kit

CE1023 IVD


The PCR kit is designed for Chlamydia pneumoniae detection by the real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method.

The C. pneumoniae detection consists in amplification of a specific conservative DNA sequence of a single-copy
ompA gene and in measurement of fluorescence increase. The C. pneumoniae presence is indicated by the FAM
fluorophore fluorescence growth. An Internal Standard (IS) is either included in the reaction mix, controlling
the possible inhibition of the PCR (ISIN version) or excluded, controlling also the DNA extraction process quality
(ISEX version). IS positive amplification is detected in the HEX fluorophore fluorescence channel. The detection
kit takes advantage of the "hot start" technology, minimizing non-specific reactions and assuring maximum
sensitivity. Ready to Use MasterMix contains uracil-DNA-glycosylase (UDG), eliminating possible contamination
of the PCR with amplification products. The kit is designed for in vitro diagnostics and provides qualitative
