Malaria Panel

The system Malaria panel is a qualitative test that allows the DNA amplification in Real-Time PCR, of P.falciparum, P.ovale, P.malariae and P.vivax genome extracted from biological samples.

The procedure allows the detection of the DNA target (18s Ribosomal RNA gene) through a genomic amplification reaction and the identification of the four different species of Malaria P.falciparum, P.ovale, P.malariae and P.vivax. The analysis of the results is obtained using a Real-Time PCR analyser (thermal cycler integrated with a system for fluorescence detection and  a dedicated software)
