FTD Hepatitis E RNA

Overview

One tube multiplex for detection AND quantification of hepatitis
E virus and internal control.

Principle

Multiplex Real-Time PCR for detection of pathogen genes by TaqMan® technology.

Targets

One tube multiplex PCR:

  • Hepatitis E RNA
  • Internal control

Specimen

The quantitative validation of FTD Hepatitis E RNA was done with extracted nucleic acid from human EDTA or Citrate plasma with NucliSENS® easyMag® and ABI® 7500.

In clinical performance evaluation studies the test was also successfully qualitatively used with human EDTA blood, EDTA serum, stool, ascites und CPDA (citrate phosphate dextrose adenine).

In case EDTA blood, EDTA serum, stool, ascites und CPDA (citrate phosphate dextrose adenine) are intended to use for quantitative analysis, the procedure has to be validated by the user. Be aware that in stool samples the sensitivity of the test is reduced.

Storage
