Fastype™ Molecular Detection Kits for
Human Infectious Diseases
Bio-Synthesis Inc. is proud to introduce the Fastype™ Conjunctivitis Adenovirus
and Chlamydia DNA PCR-SSP Detection Kits to the molecular infectious diseases testing
labs. The molecular test is also known as Nucleic Acid Amplification Test, it is
based on the amplification of the present of target DNA in the specimen rather than
the conventional method of cell or bacteria culture.
The primary features of the Fastype™ kits are listed as following:
- All primers, dNTPs and PCR buffer are pre-aliquot and lyophilized
in high-quality PCR thermal cycle 0.2ml color coded micro strip tubes. Genomic DNA
template of Adenovirus and Chlamydia are also added in the Positive Control Kits
respectively for monitoring of PCR condition and the comparison of final amplified
- Fastype™ SSP Kits reduce the preparation time to less then
- Lyophilized primers, dNTPs and PCR buffer are more stable than
in liquid form under ambient condition, and the final lyophilized red dot (reagents)
in the bottom of each PCR strip tube can distinguish clearly from the regular PCR
- The PCR Protocol for all Fastype™ System is kept the same regardless
of the kit type.
- The PCR protocol, Certificate of Product and gel loading dye
are also included in the shipment, and we have strong technical support.
Adenoviruses are a group of viruses that infect the membrane of the eyes, respiratory
tract, the intestines, and urinary tract, they are highly contagious. Pinkeye (Conjunctivitis)
always occurs in school children when the virus cause inflammation of the conjunctiva,
and they also account for about 10% of acute respiratory infections in children
and are a frequent cause of diarrhea. The three testing kits in this category are
described as following:
Chlamydia is a disease caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis, it is one of
the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the U. S., thus, it is often called
“the silent epidemic”, because infections are so prevalent yet many people do not
know that they are infected. The advantage of molecular DNA – SSP detecting method
is that generally more sensitive, specific and speedy than conventional culture,
and can therefore identify more positive specimens. The DNA – SSP kits are briefly
described as following:
