48 Test

Leishmania spp

The system Leishmaniae a qualitative test that allows the DNA amplification in Real-Time PCR, of Leishmaniae genome extracted from biological samples.

The procedure allows the detection of the DNA target (18s Ribosomal RNA gene) through a genomic amplification reaction. 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)
