Produktinformationen "Multiplex qPCR Kit for detection Legionella ssp., L. pneumophila sg (1-16) , L. pneumophila sg 1"

The Legionella Detection Multiplex qPCR Assay is designed to target specific and unique DNA sequences within the Legionella genome. The PCR products from 4 different reactions can be detected by specific DNA probes labeled with 4 different fluorophores. This allows the simultaneous detection of all the Legionella species associated with infection, all the L. pneumophila serogroups (1-16) and specifically identifies L. pneumophila sg-1, responsible for ~95% human infections. An internal amplification control is also included in the master mix as an indicator that the PCR is functioning correctly.

Designed to work on the leading real-time PCR platforms, Bio Lp-1 rapidly detects extremely low levels of Legionella, and can differentiate between Legionella spp, all L. pneumophila serogroups 1-16 and L. pneumophila-serogroup 1 simultaneously in a single water sample, giving a complete and accurate Legionella profile. With this certainty, the exact risk to public health can be quickly determined and acted upon. Particularly beneficial in cases of an outbreak, appropriate remedial actions can be taken, their efficacy monitored to reduce and remove Legionella bacteria from a contaminated water system. In less than 5 hours, water quality and safety can be assured. Simple and convenient to use, and in a freeze-dried format, the test contains all necessary components to process a water sample directly.

Bio Lp-1-Legionella multiplex one step qPCR Kit is a diagnostic breakthrough, being the world’s first open platform rapid NAD kit for simultaneously detecting and identifying multiple species of Legionella from water in a single test.

The lyophilized master mix is aliquoted into 12 x 8 low profile qPCR strips (foil wrapped).

This kit comes with negative and positive DNA control enabling to prepare standards of 10E5 GU, 10E4 GU, 10E3 GU, 10E2 GU, 10E1 GU (with 1 GU = one genomic unit).
