Measles virus (MeV) PCR Detection Kit
Measles virus (MeV) PCR Detection Kit CE-IVD
Measles remains one of the most important causes of child morbidity and mortality worldwide. It is an acute viral, infectious disease, caused by the measles virus, that is spread by coughing, sneezing, close personal contact or direct contact with infected nasal or throat secretions. Common complications include diarrhoea, middle ear infections and pneumonia although, less commonly, the virus can also cause seizures, blindness or inflammation of the brain. The virus remains active and contagious in the air or on infected surfaces for up to 2 hours, and measles outbreaks can result in epidemics that cause many deaths, especially among young, malnourished children.
- Easy to use One step Real-Time PCR Technology
- Compatible with most commonly used RT-PCR machines
- Specificity of up to 100% and Sensitive down to 10 copies per reaction
Measles (MeV) Kit
The assay is an in vitro RT-qPCR detection kit for the qualitative determination Measles (MeV) in human samples. It is based on the hydrolysis probe detection method and is a highly sensitive one step qPCR kit. Specimens may include nasopharyngeal, throat swabs, and urine specimens.
All Advanced Molecular Diagnostics products are manufactured in-house under the highest quality standards.
The Advanced Molecular Diagnostics Measles (MeV) RT-qPCR Detection Kit is highly sensitive and can detect a minimum of 10 copies per reaction as validated by our in-house methods.
The Advanced Molecular Diagnostics Measles (MeV) RT-qPCR Detection Kit is highly specific for MeV RNA as validated by our in-house methods.
The sample for AMD Measles (MeV) RT-qPCR detection Kit should be collected via human samples such as the CDC recommended specimen types, which are: nasopharyngeal, throat swabs, and urine specimens. Detection of measles RNA is most successful when specimens are collected on the first day of rash through the 3 days following onset of rash.
