artus BK Virus Kits provide all necessary reagents optimized for reliable BK virus DNA detection and quantitation. Simply add template DNA to the ready-to-use PCR master mix and Mg solution, and start the reaction on the appropriate real-time cycler using the optimized cycling program described in the kit handbook.
Common temperature profiles for multiple assays in one run
The temperature profile of artus BK Virus Kits corresponds to the profiles of the artus RG PCR Kits and artus QS-RGQ Kits for EBV, CMV, HSV-1/2, and VZV. Therefore, these PCR assays can be performed and analyzed in a single run.
Complete automated system from sample to BK virus detection
The QIAsymphony RGQ workflow solution for BK virus detection comprises the QIAsymphony SP for sample preparation, the QIAsymphony AS for assay setup, and the artus BK Virus QS-RGQ Kit on the Rotor-Gene Q. The system enables reliable pathogen detection with a complete CE-IVD-compliant workflow (see figure " Integrated QIAsymphony RGQ system for BK virus detection").
Recommendations for viral DNA purification when using the artus BK Virus RG PCR Kit
The artus BK Virus RG PCR Kit is validated for use with the EZ1 DSP Virus Kit. The artus BK Virus RG PCR Kit is also available as CE-IVD-marked EASYartus BK Virus RG PCR Kits, which include the EZ1 DSP Virus Kit for automated viral nucleic acid purification.
