Bosphore B.pertussis Detection Kit v1

Bosphore® Bordetella pertussis Detection Kit v1 detects Bordetella pertussis DNA including biopsy (tissue) samples, BAL, sputum, tracheal aspirate, nasopharyngeal aspirate, throat swab, nose swab, nasopharyngeal swab: Flocking swabs and Liquid Amies, Universal Transport Medium, VCM, Sigma Transwab, Copan ESwab, Sigma VCM. The analytic sensitivity of the kit is 1 copy/reaction. IS481 region in Bordetella pertussis genome is amplified and fluorescence detection is accomplished using the Cy5 filter.


The internal control has been integrated into the kit in order to check nucleic acid extraction, PCR inhibition and application errors. The amplification data of the internal control is detected with the Texas Red filter. The internal control can be added either during DNA extraction or PCR step.
