GeneProof Human Papillomavirus (HPV) PCR Kit
The PCR kit is designed for the detection of 24 high-risk types of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and typization of HPV 16, 18, 45 by the real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method.
The HPV detection consists in amplification of specific conservative DNA sequence in the area of E1/E2 genes and in measurement of fluorescence increase. The kit enables detection of following high-risk types HPV: 16, 18, 26, 30, 31, 33, 34, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 53, 56, 58, 59, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 73, 82, 97. The high-risk types HPV presence is indicated by the FAM fluorofore fluorescence growth. The kit enables simoultaneously type HPV 16, 18 a 45. The HPV16 presence is indicated in the Cy5 fluorofore fluorescence channel, HPV 18 in the Texas Red fluorescence channel and HPV 45 in the Cy5.5 fluorescence channel. For the DNA isolation quality control and possible PCR inhibition control there are primers and probe for GAPDH gene amplification present in the reaction mix. Amplification of GAPDH gene is indicated in the HEX fluorophore fluorescence channel. The detection kit takes advantage of the "hot start" technology, minimizing non-specific reactions and assuring maximum sensitivity. Ready to Use MasterMix contains uracil-DNA-glycosylase (UDG), eliminating possible contamination of the PCR with amplification products. The kit is designed for in vitro diagnostics and provides qualitative detection.
This PCR kit can be used as a screening test in the cervical cancer screening program.
