artus Enterovirus LC RT-PCR Kit RUO
For quantitative detection of enterovirus RNA using real-time PCR
The artus Enterovirus LC RT-PCR Kit is a ready-to-use molecular detection kit for real-time PCR. The kit provides all necessary reagents optimized for reliable enterovirus RNA detection and quantitation.
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.
To ensure sensitivity, the artus Enterovirus LC RT-PCR Kit has been optimized to detect low numbers of enterovirus RNA. The analytical sensitivity of the kit is 3.2 copies/µl in the PCR.
The artus Enterovirus LC RT-PCR Kit is based on the amplification and simultaneous detection of a specific region of the enterovirus genome using real-time PCR. The kit provides high levels of specificity and sensitivity.
Each artus Enterovirus LC RT-PCR Kit provides 4 enterovirus quantitation standards (see figure "Reliable quantitation of enterovirus load". Use of the standards enables accurate quantitation of viral load. In addition, the kits contain a second heterologous amplification system to identify possible PCR inhibition. This is detected as an internal control (IC) in a different fluorescence channel from the analytical PCR. The detection limit of the analytical enterovirus RT-PCR is not reduced.
The artus Enterovirus LC RT-PCR Kit provides all necessary reagents optimized for reliable enterovirus RNA detection and quantitation. Simply add template RNA to the ready-to-use PCR master mix, and start the reaction on the appropriate real-time cycler using the optimized cycling program described in the kit handbook.
For RNA purification, we recommend using the QIAamp Viral RNA Mini Kit.
The artus Enterovirus LC RT-PCR Kit enables rapid and sensitive detection of enterovirus RNA from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) with accurate quantification. The kit is available for use on the Lightcycler 1.1/1.2/1.5 Instruments.
