MassEasy STD Detection Kit
*STD : Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that are passed from one person to another through sexual contact. The causes of STDs are bacteria, parasites, yeast, and viruses. The MassEasy STD detection kit is designed to detect multiple pathogens of sexually transmitted infectious disease using the MassARRAY® System (Agena BioscienceTM).
The principle of MassEasy STD detection kit is based on the MassARRAY® iPLEX Pro chemistry. This kit detects 12 pathogens in a single reaction and identifies them based on mass differences between target pathogens, which gives greater specificity and sensitivity in comparison with other PCR-based detection kits.
The 12 pathogens include Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma genitalium, Mycoplasma hominis, Trichomonas vaginalis, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Gardnerella Vaginalis, Candida Albicans, Treponema pallidum, Ureaplasma parvum, Human herpes simplex virus 1 and Human herpes simplex virus 2.
The MassARRAY® System uses matrix‐assisted laser desorption ionization time‐of‐flight mass spectrometry (MALDI‐TOF MS). The system, coupled with the iPLEX Pro chemistry which utilizes single‐base extension PCR, enables high‐throughput multiplex SNP detection. The PCR and extension primers in the MassEASY STD kit have been optimized to amplify specific regions for each target organisms.
Features & Benefits
of multiple target pathogens from a single well (13-plex including 12 targets and one control)
Pathogen-specific target gene region prevents contaminated between pathogens.
Low copy number (1~10) of target gene is enough for detection
Urine and virginal swabs can be used for sample collection.
One human housekeeping gene is included in the kit and this can be used for validation of your sample preparation.
Large number of samples (up to 384 samples) can be analyzed at once.
Automatic analyzing by Typer 4.0 software program, and reporting by user friendly dev loped software.
