Fungal PCR detection kit developed by DRL for use by armed forces and civil sectors
- Rapid, sensitive and species-specific PCR method for detection of T. rubrum and T. mentagrophytes.
- Validated with clinical isolates of both species.
- Specificity cross checked with range of fungi and common bacterial contaminants.
- Capable of detecting 1 pg DNA of respective species
- The kit includes two SCAR primer pairs –(i) TRS1F/TRS1R for T. rubrum detection and (ii) TMS1F/TMS1R for T. mentagrophytes detection
- Two control DNA samples: Control 1 (T. rubrum genomic DNA) and Control 2 (T. mentagrophytesgenomic DNA)
TOT Status: Technology is ready for transfer.
