Bosphore Bocavirus Detection Kit v1

Bosphore® Bocavirus Detection Kit v1 detects Bocavirus DNA in human biological samples including biopsy (tissue) samples, BAL, sputum, tracheal aspirate, nasopharyngeal aspirate, nose swab, throat swab, nasopharyngeal swab: Flocking swabs and Liquid Amies, Universal Transport Medium, VCM, Sigma Transwab, Copan ESwab, Sigma VCM. The analytic sensitivity of the kit is 40 copies/reaction. A specific region of NP1 gene in Bocavirus genome is amplified and fluorescence detection is accomplished using the FAM filter.

 

An internal control has been integrated into the kit in order to check DNA extraction, PCR inhibition and application errors. The amplification data of the internal control is detected with Cy5 filter. The internal control can be added either during DNA extraction or PCR step.
