PaxView® TB/NTM MPCR-ULFA Kit
PaxView® TB/NTM MPCR-ULFA Kit is a qualitative in vitro test for the detection of two specific genes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis—IS6110 and mtp40—and a specific gene of the genus Mycobacterium—rpoB—in sputum or Bronchoalveolar lavage(BAL) found in the human body by utilizing the multiplex polymerase chain reaction (MPCR) and universal lateral flow assay (ULFA).This test is for professional use and is intended to aid in the diagnosis of MTB and/or NTM infection.
The PaxView® TB/NTM MPCR-ULFA Kit adopts PaxGenBio’s proprietary technology using the patented universal probe linked to the PCR primer that amplifies a target gene from clinical samples and enables the visual inspection of DNA-DNA hybridization between the universal probe on one end of PCR products and its complementary sequence. When loaded on to the sample pad in an ULFA cartridge, PCR products move on the nitrocellulose membrane along with the running buffer and hybridize with the complementary DNA fragments immobilized on specific regions of the nitrocellulose membrane. Finally, it is easy to visually check the results within 10 minutes after adding the PCR products.
