Universal Microbe Detection an ideal kitt for identifying a broad range of bacteria and fungi from a variety of sample types in the research setting. The kit supplies DNA extraction and PCR protocols for whole blood, CSF and synovial fluid, BAL, exudates such as sputum and urine, human, animal tissues, plant tissues, biopsies, and biofilms.
Microbes (including bacteria, yeasts and other fungi) are detected via rRNA genes-specific universal PCR assays. Sequencing primers are included.
Identification may be performed through Sanger sequencing, pyrosequencing or other next generation sequencing methods. An important feature of the Universal Microbe Detection kit the ability to detect and identify microorganisms that are viable but not growing in culture as a reason of complex growth requirements or inhibition by antibiotics.
