VERSANT HIV-1 RNA 1.0 Assay (kPCR)
Highly Sensitive HIV Viral Load Assay for use on the VERSANT kPCR Molecular System*
Performance to meet your needs
- Efficient and reproducible extraction, amplification, and detection of HIV-1 RNA
- Up to 89 patient samples per run
- Results in less than 6 hours
Outstanding Assay Performance
- Excellent performance with quality extraction
- Low limit of detection (LOD) with high accuracy
- Good precision across a wide dynamic range
- Compatible with a variety of subtypes and circulating recombinant forms
Automated and Flexible Technology
- Primary-tube sampling supports a variety of tube types and sizes
- Positive patient sample identification with bar-code ID for sample and results tracking
- Up to 178 patient results per shift
- 500 uL sample input volume
Robust Assay Design
- Enhanced sensitivity and specificity with BLACK HOLE QUENCHER**
- Detects all Group M and Group O subtypes
- Targets highly conserved pol integrase gene with unique TAQMAN probe
- Lower annealing temperature tolerates greater mismatch which leads to better subtype quantitation
- Non-competitive internal control to monitor extraction and PCR efficiency
- Amplicon contamination control with UNG
