HHV6 RQ Kit
Quantitative Detection of HHV-6A and HHV-6B DNA
Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is a double-stranded DNA virus and a member of Herpesviridae family. It comprises two distinct herpesvirus species of HHV-6A and HHV-6B. Primary infection occurs mostly in early childhood followed by a life-long latent infection. While both viruses may get re-activeated later on, HHV-6B is more prone to it especially in post-transplant patients. Both viurses have also been related to nervous system complications including meningitis and encephalitis.
HHV6 RQ kit provides a ready-to-use Real-Time PCR system for detection, differentiation and quantitation of HHV-6A and HHV-6B viruses with Rotor-Gene or StepOne machines.
Advantages of HHV6 RQ Kit
Ready to Use
The HHV6 Mix contains all necessary reagents for Real-Time PCR and is ready to use; no further preparation or mixing is required. Reactions are prepared simply by addition of the mix directly to the tubes followed by the sample DNA. Results can be viewed in FAM/Green, Orange/ROX channel.
PCR mix contains also specific DNA that is detected by a second probe in VIC/Yellow channel. Internal Control prevents false negative results by PCR inhibition or setup errors.
Standards & mixes of HHV6 RQ Kit are manufactured in batches, and each series is distributed only after passing Quality Control tests for Specificity, Sensitivity, Accuracy and Precision.
Easy & Quick Setup
Kit contains a template file for quick and easy setup of the Real-Time PCR instrument and no need to go through time taking manual setting, also reducing setup errors.
Kit contains PCR Mix and 4 quantitation standards and internal control for HHV6 Mix and water, manual and a CD with template file.
Kit is available as 24, 48 and 96 reactions of 25µl volume.
Technical support team is always available via phone or email. The team may also visit your lab for training or troubleshooting.
