Kits for Nucleic Acid–based Diagnostics
Norgen Biotek's kits for nucleic-acid based diagnostics includes kits for the diagnosis of human pathogens, food-borne pathogens, and plant pathogens.
Norgen Biotek's kits for nucleic-acid based diagnostics includes kits for the diagnosis of human pathogens such as: HPV, HIV, HSV-1 & 2, HBV, chlamydia, gonorrhea; food-borne pathogens such as listeria, salmonella, and streptococcus species; and plant pathogens such as: plum pox virus (PPV), aspergillus, penicillium, and boytritis. In terms of diagnostic kits for the human pathogens, the company has paid particular attention to the development of kits based on non-invasive sample preparation. The diagnostic kits are complete kits that include all the components for the isolation of high quality inhibitor-free nucleic acid, as well as the required master mixes and controls to allow for PCR amplification and detection. The kits combine both sensitivity and specificity of detection, and include controls to eliminate false negatives and problematic isolations.
