Detection of ITS2-region of Candida and Aspergillus fumigatus.

Background: Candidiasis is a yeast infection caused by different Candida species. Candida can cause opportunistic infections of the skin and mucosa as well as invasive infections. Aspergilli are ubiquitous molds that can cause allergies as well as infections (aspergilloses). Invasive candidiasis and aspergillosis are increasingly recognized as a primary cause of morbidity and mortality especially in immunocompromised patients, patients with severe underlying disorders or intensive care patients. The pathogen can be detected in biopsies from the affected organ or in the blood. The rapid and early diagnosis of a fungal infection is of particular importance with regard to survival and cure rates. Not only the detection, but also the exact identification of the fungal species is important.

Description: MycoReal Kit Candida & A. fumigatus is an in vitro diagnostic test based on real-time PCR, for the qualitative detection of specific DNA of C. albicans, C. dubliniensis, C. glabrata, C. krusei (= Pichia kudriavzevii, Issatchenkia orientalis), C. parapsilosis group, C. tropicalis and Aspergillus fumigatus. Starting material is DNA purified from blood, biopsies, aspirates, punctates, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or samples of the respiratory tract. The kit supports the detection of a Candida or A. fumigatus infection of patients with a suspected sepsis or fungal infection. The species are detected with two different assay mixes (Module 7 and Module 8) which must be analyzed in parallel. With this approach, C. glabrata, C. krusei, C. parapsilosis and A. fumigatus can be differentiated from other Candida species, which enables specific antifungal therapy. Since MycoReal Kits and PanReal Kit use identical temperature/time profiles, they can be combined in the same real-time PCR run. This allows the detection of a wide panel of pathogenic fungi within only a few hours.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Candida auris

Candida auris detection test kit by using qPCR. Candida auris is an emerging fungus which can cause candidiasis in humans. Healthcare facilities in several countries have reported that C. auris has caused severe illness in hospitalized patients with weakened immune systems. It can cause invasive candidiasi. Some strains of C. auris are resistant to all three major classes of antifungal drugs.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Candida albicans

Candida albicans detection test kit by using qPCR. Candida albicans is a dimorphic fungus and is one of the few species of the genus that cause candidiasis infection in humans. Systemic fungal infections (fungemias) have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. In addition, hospital-acquired infections of C. albicans have become a cause of major health concerns.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Aspergillus fumigatus

Aspergillus fumigatus detection test kit by using qPCR. Aspergillus fumigatus is a fungus and is one of the most frequent cause of invasive fungal infection in immunosuppressed individuals. Additionally, it can cause chronic pulmonary infections, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, or allergic disease in immunocompetent hosts.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Cryptosporidium spp.

Cryptosporidium spp. detection test kit by using qPCR. Cryptosporidium can cause respiratory and gastrointestinal illness (cryptosporidiosis). The disease primarily involves watery diarrhea (intestinal cryptosporidiosis) with or without a persistent cough (respiratory cryptosporidiosis) in both, immunocompetent and immunodeficient humans. In humans, the main ones responsible for the disease are C. parvum and C.hominis (previously C.parvum genotype 1) but C. canis, C. felis, C. meleagridis and C. muris can also cause disease in humans.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Cryptococcus neoformans/gattii

Cryptococcus neoformans/gatti detection test kit by using qPCR. Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii are two closely related species of encapsulated yeast belonging to the Cryptococcaceae family. C. neoformanss is an obligate aerobe that can live in both plants and animals and can cause cryptococcosis in immunocompromised, hosts. C. gattii (formerly known as Cryptococcus neoformans var. gattii) is found primarily in tropical/subtropical climates and causes human pulmonary cryptococcosis, basal meningitis, and cerebral cryptococcosis.
