RoboGene HSV DNA Qualitative Kit

Real-time PCR based detection of HSV DNA

Product Details

  • Detection of HSV-1 and HSV-2 DNA
  • Parallel detection of samples, standards and IC DNA
  • Available for application on Rotor-Gene 3000/6000/Q, CFX96, ABI 7500 Fast, ABI PRISM 7000/7300 SDS, qTOWER2&3 or LightCycler 480 II

The RoboGene HSV DNA Qualitative Kit is a real-time PCR based amplification test for detection of Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) DNA in human liquor, blister aspirates, tissue and swab samples. All virus types (HSV-1 and HSV-2) are amplified with equal efficiency applying probes and primers specific for a subsequence of the HSV genome encoding parts of the DNA polymerase (UL 30) gene. The Kit includes qualitative standards as well as a synthetic internal control via extraction tubes. Amplification of HSV DNA in samples and standards and of IC DNA is measured independently at different wavelengths due to probes labelling with different fluorescence reporter dyes (HSV DNA: FAM channel; IC DNA: Yakima Yellow/VIC/JOE channel). Regarding the plastic ware the kit is available in a variety of configurations depending on the real-time PCR device. For sample preparation the INSTANT Virus RNA/DNA Kit (AJ Innuscreen) is recommended.
