Real-time PCR test
The Fungiplex® Universal Real-Time PCR Kit is designed for research use only (RUO), to rapidly detect the presence of fungal DNA from samples, without culture. It offers broad-coverage, real-time PCR testing covering 24 filamentous fungi genera, which complements the existing more specific IVD-CE Fungiplex Kits.
The Fungiplex® Universal PCR Kit detects a broad range of fungal species, including those with low prevalence, and those that are not detected by diagnostic biomarkers, such as from the Zygomycetes or Cryptococcus genera.
The Fungiplex® Universal PCR Kit is a research use only assay for broad identification of fungal species directly from samples, without culture.
The Fungiplex® Universal PCR Kit has been validated across multiple real-time PCR instruments. The assay is designed to be used across common laboratory PCR equipment and can process up to 50 samples from post-extraction to result in less than 2 hours. The use of universal primers and multiple probes on the same fluorophore (Cy5) results in the detection of a broad range of fungal genera.
The quality of the extracted DNA is inherently linked to the sensitivity achieved by real-time PCR assays. The rapid, reliable detection provided by this test has the potential to improve the understanding of fungal disease, from a research perspective, while quality controlled manufacture ensures full confidence in assay quality and reproducibility.
