Microbial DNA qPCR Assays

For real-time PCR-based microbial detection; includes one assay with Microbial qPCR Mastermix for 100 reactions
  • Experimentally verified assays with high sensitivity and specificity
  • Detect microbial species, virulence genes or antibiotic resistance genes
  • Simple qPCR workflow
Microbial DNA qPCR Assays are a mix of two PCR primers (10 µM each) and one 5′-hydrolysis probe (5 µM) that enables quantitative real-time PCR for 100 reactions. Microbial DNA qPCR Assays are designed using a proprietary and experimentally verified algorithm, providing uniform PCR efficiency and amplification conditions. Each Microbial DNA qPCR Assay undergoes rigorous experimental verification to ensure high PCR efficiency, and this high efficiency is guaranteed when the assays are used with Microbial qPCR Mastermixes and Microbial DNA-Free Water (sold separately).

What is the difference between microbial identification and profiling? Identification is determining the microbe’s presence or absence in your sample which requires you to run a No Template Control during your analysis. Profiling is determining the microbe’s relative expression in two or more experimental conditions and you will need to run a reference sample and a normalizer (provided by QIAGEN).
Search in GeneGlobe
You can search for the following terms:
  • Entrez Gene IDs (e.g., 835)
  • RefSeq IDs (e.g., NM_032983, NP_116765)
  • Gene symbols (e.g., CASP2)
  • Cat. no. (e.g., SI00299551, QT01342509)
  • Sanger ID or Accession (e.g., hsa-let-7b, MI0000063)
  • CpG loci identification numbers (CG#) (e.g., CG17753661)

Do not enter species information in the Search box. Use the drop-down list to select your species of interest.
When searching for miRNAs, do not omit the hyphens. Use hyphens or spaces (e.g., search for hsa-let-7b or hsa let 7b. Do not search for hsalet7b).
