Detection method: quantitative real-time PCR

This in vitro diagnostic kit is intended for detection and quantification of the pathogenic DNA of the most commonly occurring species of Aspergillus – Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus terreus by real-time PCR method.

Clinical implications of the CE IVD kit

Opportunistic infections caused by Aspergillus species are responsible for frequent therapy complications in an increasing number of immuno-compromised patients (involves especially patients after hematopoietic cell or solid organ transplantation, patients with hematological malignancies or other diseases related to the malfunction of the immune system).

This type of infection is mostly manifested as invasive aspergillosis (IA). Early diagnosis and efficient antimycotic treatment is most important for the patient’s survival. The infection usually attacks the respiratory system and that is why IA mostly affects lungs (or less frequently paranasal sinuses and CNS (brain)). In the case of dissemination process, almost every organ (gastrointestinal tract, heart, kidneys) may be affected. Most cases of IA (approximately 80 %) are caused by the species Aspergillus fumigatus, other clinically important species are A. flavus, A. niger, A. terreus, other Aspergillus species occur rarely.

gb SG PCR Master Mix gb SG PCR Master Mix

gb SG PCR Master Mix falls into a group of Real-Time PCR Master Mixes to provide Dye-based qPCR. The product consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP, MgCl2, sybrgreen and additives that prevent PCR inhibition. Taq polymerase is chemically modified DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus. This polymerase is completely inactive at room temperature but it is rapidly activated during the initial denaturation step of PCR.
