The cador Leptospira Reagent contains reagents and enzymes for the specific and efficient amplification of highly conserved regions of the Leptospira genome. Inhibition and other malfunctions of PCR are determined by measuring the fluorescence signal in the yellow channel via amplification of the Internal Control (IC), which does not influence the amplification of the analytical PCR for Leptospira. An external positive control (Leptospira Control DNA, containing the targeted Leptospira DNA) is also supplied. Leptospira DNA is detected efficiently and precisely over a wide linear range (see the figure Efficient and precise identification of Leptospira DNA over a wide linear range).
Pathogen identification by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is based on the amplification of specific regions of the pathogen genome. In real-time PCR, the amplified product is detected using fluorescent dyes. These are usually linked to oligonucleotide probes that bind specifically to the amplified product. Monitoring the fluorescence intensities during the PCR run (i.e., in real time) allows detection of the accumulating product without having to re-open the reaction tubes afterward, which reduces the risk of cross contamination.
The cador Leptospira PCR Reagent contains a primer-probe set specific for a highly conserved region of the Leptospira genome. The reagent also includes a heterologous amplification system as an internal control to ensure the correct interpretation of negative results, and an external positive control. Real-time PCR detection is carried out on a real-time PCR cycler, such as the Rotor-Gene Q.
Bacterial DNA can be manually isolated from samples using the QIAamp cador Pathogen Mini Kit. The isolated DNA is ready for use in real-time PCR with the cador Leptospira PCR Reagent on a real-time PCR cycler, such as the Rotor-Gene Q.
The cador Leptospira PCR Reagent is designed to identify Leptospira DNA in biological samples using polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
