Detection of ITS2 region of fungi and the 16S rDNA of bacteria.

Background: PanReal Kit Fungi & Bacteria is a multiplex-PCR real-time PCR test for universal detection of fungi and bacteria in samples purified from bronchoalveolar lavages (BAL), aspirates, cerebrospinal fluid, tissue, paraffin embedded tissue and fungal/bacterial colonies. Due to contamination, PanReal Kit Fungi & Bacteria is less sensitive compared to species-specific assays. The kit is suitable only to a limited extent for the detection of fungi in blood samples. This test is not suitable for the detection of bacteria in blood samples. For phylogenetic identification of the pathogen, the PCR product has to be sequenced and analysed by BLAST. In FAM channel the ITS2-region of fungi is detected (amplicon of about 370 bp). In VIC channel the 16S rDNA gene of bacteria is detected (amplicon of about 550 bp). The internal DNA positive control (DNA IPC) is detected in Cy5 channel (667 nm) and is used as DNA extraction as well as real-time PCR inhibition control. The target for the DNA IPC is extracted with the sample.

Description: Fungal diseases are mostly opportunistic infections with a great variety of common and uncommon pathogens. Up to 150 fungal species have been shown as potential human pathogens involving all body sites. Invasive mycoses are increasingly recognized as a primary cause of morbidity and mortality especially in immunocompromised patients. These infections are mainly caused by yeasts and moulds. The mortality rate of invasive fungal infections is 40-100%. A rapid diagnosis improves the outcome. Non-invasive fungal infections (such as infections of the urogenitary tract, of the eye, of the skin, etc.) are mainly caused by Candida, Aspergillus, Acremonium, Fusarium and dermatophytes. Concerning bacterial infections, broad‐range PCR targeting the 16S rDNA gene is useful when antimicrobial therapy has already been initiated or when culture remains negative due to infections caused by bacteria with unusual growth requirements.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Plasmodium spp.

Plasmodium spp. detection test kit by using qPCR. Plasmodium are obligate parasites of vertebrates and insects. The vertebrate hosts include mammals, birds, and reptiles and Plasmodium must pass between a vertebrate and an insect host to complete their life cycles. It is responsible for a disease called malaria.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Trypanosoma spp.

Trypanosoma spp. detection test kit by using qPCR. Trypanosoma spp. infect a variety of different vertebrates, including animals and humans. The majority of species are transmitted by blood-feeding invertebrates, but there are different mechanisms among the varying species. Trypanosomes infect a variety of hosts and cause various diseases. This design detects the majority of Trypanosoma species, but excludes T. congolense, T. vivax and Trypanozoon.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Borrelia burgdorferi

Borrelia burgdorferi detection test kit by using qPCR. Borrelia burgdorferi is a bacterial species of the Spirochaetes phylum and it is a tick-borne obligate parasite whose normal reservoir is a variety of small mammals. Infection of these natural hosts does not lead to disease, but infection of humans can result in Lyme disease, as a consequence of the human immunopathological response to B. burgdorferi.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Trichomonas vaginalis

Trichomonas vaginalis detection test kit by using qPCR. Trichomonas vaginalis is transmitted sexually and it is the most common pathogenic protozoan infection in industrialized countries. The disease has a broad range of symptoms ranging from a state of severe inflammation to a relatively asymptomatic carrier state. In most complicated cases, T. vaginalis is associated with many perinatal complications, genitourinary tract infections, and an increased incidence of HIV transmission.

Real Time PCR Detection Kit Toxoplasma gondii

Toxoplasma gondii detection test kit by using qPCR. Toxoplasma gondii is capable of infecting virtually all warm-blooded animals, but felids are the only known definitive hosts in which the parasite can undergo sexual reproduction. In most adults, it does not cause serious illness, but it can cause blindness and mental retardation in congenitally infected children and devastating disease in immunocompromised individuals.
