TRUPCR® HPV 16 & 18 Detection Kit
The TRUPCR® HPV 16 & 18 Detection Kit is a qualitative real time PCR kit which amplifies and detects HPV 16 & 18 DNA in cervical cells collected in liquid media. HPV infections are among the most common sexually transmitted infections. Most HPV infections have a benign clinical consequence and are cleared spontaneously. However, persistent HPV infection may result in progression to cervical cancer.
The TRUPCR® HPV 16 & 18 Detection Kit is based on amplification of conserved region by primer and probes specific for HPV 16 & 18. The detection is achieved using fluorescent probes labelled with FAM and HEX. In this kit there are three independent reactions running in parallel in two tubes: the first detects HPV 16 (FAM channel), and internal control (IC) DNA (Texas Red) which allows excluding unreliable results and second detects HPV 18 (HEX channel).
