Touching the Life of Humankind
HSV1/2 Quantification Kit
Herpesviruses are commonly found in humans as well as many vertabrates such as fishes, birds, reptiles and mammals. Eight different human herpes viruses in three genera have been discovered; alpha-, beta- and gamma-herpesviruses. Three species are classified in alpha-herpesviruses: Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), which responsible for oral herpes and cold sores, Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) causes genital herpes and Varicella-Zoster virus (VZV) causes chicken pox and shingles. Laborant HSV1/2 QuAnt RT-qPCR Kit detects quantification of the HSV-1 and HSV-2 virus by real-time PCR (qPCR). This kit is used for the quantitative detection of 2 types of HS Virus with convenient multiplex PCR amplification. Kit contains 4 standards (HSV-S E3, HSV-S E4, HSV-S E5, HSV-S E6) that include a certain number of virus copies. The copy number of the unknown sample is calculated through these standards.
