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