Performance
See the online Performance Characteristics.
Principle
The artus VanR QS-RGQ Kit constitutes a ready-to-use system for the detection of vanA and vanB DNA using real-time PCR on Rotor-Gene Q instruments with sample preparation and assay setup using QIAsymphony SP/AS instruments. The VanR Master A and VanR Master B contain reagents and enzymes for the specific amplification of target regions within the vanA and vanB genes associated with vancomycin-resistant enterococci, and for the direct detection of the specific amplicon in fluorescence channels Cycling Green and Cycling Orange of Rotor-Gene Q instruments.
In addition, the artus VanR QS-RGQ Kit contains a second heterologous control system to identify potential failures during the entire assay process. This is detected as an internal control (IC) in fluorescence channel Cycling Crimson of Rotor-Gene Q instruments.
Procedure
The QIAsymphony RGQ complete workflow solution for detection of vanA and vanB DNA comprises the QIAsymphony SP and QIAsymphony DSP Virus/Pathogen Mini Kit for sample preparation, the QIAsymphony AS for assay setup, the artus VanR QS-RGQ Kit on Rotor-Gene Q instruments for detection, and Rotor-Gene AssayManager for automated interpretation of results. The system enables reliable pathogen DNA detection with a complete CE-IVD-compliant workflow.
Applications
The artus VanR QS-RGQ Kit enables rapid and sensitive detection of nucleic acids encoding vanA and vanB vancomycin resistance genes directly from human perianal or rectal swabs from patients at risk for vancomycin resistant enterococcus (VRE) colonization. The test is intended to be used directly on patient samples.
The artus VanR QS-RGQ Kit is intended to be used as an aid to identify, prevent, and control vancomycin-resistant colonization.
The artus VanR QS-RGQ Kit is designed to be used with the QIAsymphony RGQ, providing a complete CE-IVD-compliant workflow, from sample to result.
