Chlamydia Trachomatis Diagnostic Kit (PCR-Fluorescence Probing)

Chlamydia trachomatis is a small obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen commonly spread as a sexually transmitted infection. The C. trachomatis PCR diagnostic test kit is designed to detect and quantify these pathogens and provides the broadest possible detection profile so as to ensure that all clinically relevant subtypes are detected. Detailed clinical study has validated the high specificity, sensitivity, and reproducibility of the kit with analytical sensitivity of 1000 copies/mL in the sample. The kit contains reagents for nucleic acid extraction, realtime-PCR detection and quality control.

Catalogue #: ABI - Chlamydia Trachomatis Diagnostic Kit

Principles of the test

The kit has specifically designed primers as well as a fluorescent probe thereby allowing utilization of realtime fluorescent PCR. The genetic sequence of C. trachomatis can be targeted through realtime-PCR amplification. Variation in the fluorescent signal is directly proportional to the quantity of amplified product.

Key Features

The kit contains ready-to-use reagents, offers fast real-time detection and provides excellent sensitivity and high specificity. It is also optimized for use in automated liquid handling workstations. By combining this kit with Aurora’s VERSA™ workstations, laboratories can fully automate the amplification process thereby reducing cost and operator error, while increasing efficiency.
