For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostics procedures. No claim or representation is intended to provide information for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
Principle
The artus MRSA/SA QS-RGQ Kit RUO constitutes a ready-to-use system for the detection of MRSA/SA DNA using real-time PCR on Rotor-Gene Q instruments with sample preparation and assay setup using QIAsymphony SP/AS instruments. The MRSA/SA Master contains reagents and enzymes for the specific amplification and direct detection of target regions within the methicillin-resistance genes mecA and mecC, as well as within the SA-specific gene, Idh1. This unique assay design combined with the ΔCT value algorithm used by Rotor-Gene AssayManager ensures accurate results.
The mecA and mecC targets are detected in fluorescence channel Cycling Green, and the Idh1 target is detected in fluorescence channel Cycling Orange of Rotor-Gene Q instruments.
In addition, the artus MRSA/SA QS-RGQ Kit RUO 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 MRSA/SA DNA comprises the QIAsymphony SP and QIAsymphony DSP Virus/Pathogen Midi Kit for sample preparation, the QIAsymphony AS for assay setup, the artus MRSA/SA QS-RGQ Kit RUO on Rotor-Gene Q instruments for detection, and Rotor-Gene AssayManager for automated interpretation of results. The system enables reliable pathogen DNA detection.
Applications
The artus MRSA/SA QS-RGQ Kit RUO enables rapid and sensitive detection of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Staphlyococcus aureus (SA) using DNA purified from nasal swabs.
The artus MRSA/SA QS-RGQ Kit RUO is designed to be used with the QIAsymphony RGQ, providing a complete  workflow from sample to result.
