artus CMV PCR Kits provide all necessary reagents optimized for reliable CMV 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 CMV RG PCR Kit and the artus CMV QS-RGQ Kit corresponds to the profiles of the artus RG PCR Kits and artus QS-RGQ Kits for BK virus, EBV, HSV-1/2, and VZV. Therefore, these PCR assays can be performed and analyzed in a single run.
Complete automated system from sample to CMV detection
The QIAsymphony RGQ workflow solution for CMV detection comprises the QIAsymphony SP for sample preparation, the QIAsymphony AS for assay setup, and the artus CMV 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 CMV detection").
Recommendations for viral DNA purification when using the artus CMV LC, RG, or TM PCR Kits
The artus TM PCR Kit is validated for use with the QIAamp DSP Virus Kit. With the artus CMV RG and LC PCR Kits, either the QIAamp DSP Virus Kit or the EZ1 DSP Virus Kit can be used. The artus CMV RG PCR Kit is also available as CE-IVD-marked EASYartus CMV RG PCR Kits, which include the EZ1 DSP Virus Kit for automated viral nucleic acid purification.
