GenoQuestTM CA/GV qPCR Assay

A fast molecular diagnostic approach to Candida albicans and Gardnerella vaginalis detection

What is it?

Highly sensitive real time PCR assay
Highly sensitive detection of Candida albicans and Gardnerella vaginalis nucleic acids
Detection as low as 30 copies DNA per reaction
Compatible with various real time PCR machines
Results in 2 hours (after extraction)


Who is it for?

This Assay is intended exclusively for in vitro diagnostic use with the appropriate clinical laboratory settings, safety standards and properly trained personnel.
It is designed for qualitative identification of Candida albicans (CA) and Gardnerella Vaginalis (GV) by applying the real-time PCR technique. The assay has been validated using human vaginal specimens, including swab or liquid-based cytology (LBC).
This kit is especially valuable to practitioners responsible for the health of sexually active adults. It is also useful for labs conducting research into STDs.


Why is it different?

This kit provides a simple, rapid and highly sensitive method to detect and differentiate CA and GV.
The ready-to-use reagent is compatible with various real time PCR machines and delivers results in less than 2 hours.


Accurate – Highly sensitive test
Fast – Results in 2 hours (after extraction)
Easy – No post-PCR manipulation required
Cost effective – Lowest overall cost in market
