Bridged Nucleic Acids (BNA)
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:
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 bdescribed as following:
