TRUPCR® HBV Viral Load Kit
TRUPCR® HBV Viral Load Kit is quantitative detection kit that utilizes real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification of nucleic acids for detection of hepatitis B viral DNA from human serum or plasma from HBV-infected individuals. In each test two independent reactions are running in parallel. The first detects HBV in FAM channel, & second detects internal control reaction on Texas red channel.
HBV DNA detection and viral load measurement are essential for the diagnosis, decision to treat and subsequent monitoring of patients.
TRUPCR® HBV Viral Load Kit primers and probes target the highly conserved pre-core and core regions of the HBV genome. Kit demonstrated the ability to reproducibly detect the presence of HBV at the level of = 2.5 IU/ml.
