The Aspergillus test kit consists of an optimized mix of target-specific primers and probes for the detection of Aspergillus fungi and the identification of genetic mutations associated with polyazole resistance. Based on multiplex PCR technology, the kit uses fluorescent probes and melting curves to identify the tandem repeat sequence TR34 and SNP sites L98H, T289A and Y121F in the CYP51A gene of Aspergillus fumigatus, thereby distinguishing wild-type and drug-resistant strains.
Aspergillus typing kit can directly detect clinically significant Aspergillus species in clinical materials (BAL, serum), including Aspergillus fumigatus and Aspergillus terreus.
When used in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory tests, the Aspergillus test kit is helpful in the diagnosis of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) in hematology and intensive care unit (ICU) patients.
Package Size: 25 tests/kit
There is no limits to the types of samples. It can be fungal culture, BAL sample, serum or biopsy tissue. Clinical samples can be quickly transferred to the laboratory for experiments, or can be stored at -20°C or -70°C for a long time to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Store at -30°C~-15°C away from light, try to avoid repeated freezing and thawing (no more than 15 times); please refer to the product label for the expiration date. In order to avoid cross-contamination, it is recommended to be operated in a PCR laboratory, and positive quality controls should be stored separately.
