SARS-CoV-2 Triplex PCR kit

REF 89-03 Form F

CE IVD

Product description

The SARS-CoV-2 Triplex PCR kit is one-step reverse transcription real-time PCR multiplex test for detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acids from nasopharyngeal swabs, oropharyngeal swabs and saliva samples from individuals suspected of COVID-19.

SARS-CoV-2 Triplex PCR kit simultaneously detects three targets, in ORF1ab, ORF8, and N protein coding regions, each on separate detection channel. The detection of 3 regions increases the specificity of the test and makes it stable against potential mutations of the virus in the regions where primers or probes bind.

As internal control of quality of RNA extraction and reverse transcription reaction, the test uses specific set of primers and fluorescent probes for transcript of one of the human “housekeeping genes”.

Positive control reaction uses mix of in vitro transcribed RNAs corresponding to the target SARS-CoV-2 genome regions.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) are predominantly transmitted via sexual contacts. The causes of STD are heterogeneous and contain viral infections and bacterial infections as well as infection with protozoa and others. STD especially evoke inflammations of genitals and urinary tract. They are often characterized by asymptomatic process and elude diagnosis and treatment.
However, an early diagnosis increase the success of treatment, reduces the probability of transmission to sexual partners as well as dissemination and individual long-term effects.

STD are spread throughout the world and occur with increasing incidence. According to published data of WHO the incidence increased from 2005 to 2008 in case of gonorrhea by 21 % and of trichomoniasis by 11.2 %. Gonorrhea and trichomoniasis are known cofactors for HIV infections and might cause reproductive problems.

Diagnostics

Microscopy and culture techniques are still common to diagnose STD. However, molecular biologic methods like real-time PCR offer the advantage of a fast and sensitive diagnosis. Problems with transportation of the samples from the physician to the lab while maintaining necessary vitality and motility of microorganisms for detection do no longer occur. Even the smallest sample volumes as well as various types of samples are sufficient for PCR diagnosis.
