ISO CE marked fro IVD
This molecular diagnostic PCR kit is CE approved and complies with the Directive 98/79/EC for IVD, in vitro PCR Diagnostics. The PCR kit is ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2012, CE marked with the in vitro diagnostic medical divices requirements Annex 2 of list B of the laboratory Directive 98/79/EC and can be used for diagnosis of viruses. The kit inculde all reagents for PCR or RT-PCR of viral DNA or RNA.
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus (a subgroup of retrovirus) that causes HIV infection and over time acquired immunodeficiency syndrome(AIDS). AIDS is a condition in humans in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers to thrive. Without treatment, average survival time after infection with HIV is estimated to be 9 to 11 years, depending on the HIV subtype. Infection with HIV occurs by the transfer of blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-ejaculate, or breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells. recombinant HIV 1 and 2 gag gene proteins p24, p17, p55 immunodominant epitopes and envelope glycoproteins, gp120 are used for production of diagnostic detection antibodies.
PCR, polymerase chain reaction
TAQ or Pfu or Pfx or other enzymes are used for polycmerase chain reaction and have different specificity. The mores specific the lower the yield.
Thermocyclers can be callibrated for identical ramping curves to obtain a more accurate PCR.
