TRUPCR® HIV Viral Load Kit
AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a syndrome caused by a virus called HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). The disease alters the immune system, making people much more vulnerable to infections and diseases. This susceptibility worsens if the syndrome progresses. HIV is found throughout all the tissues of the body but is transmitted through the body fluids of an infected person (semen, vaginal fluids, blood, and breast milk).
TRUPCR® HIV Viral Load Kit is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification assay for the QUANTITATIVE detection of Human Immunodeficiency type-1 (HIV-1) Viral RNA in human serum or plasma (EDTA) from HIV infected individual specimens using Real Time PCR System. TRUPCR® HIV Viral Load Kit is a real time reverse transcription PCR assay in which RNA templates are first reverse-transcribed to generate complementary cDNA strands followed by DNA polymerase-mediated cDNA amplification. During cDNA amplification in real-time PCR, the fluorescent signal is generated from the presence of an oligonucleotide probe specific for target DNA sequence.
