AccuPower® HLA-B27 Real-Time PCR Kit
The function of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) system is to present antigen molecules to a variety of cell
types including most immune cells. The HLA system plays a large role in infectious diseases, graft rejection and autoimmunity.
HLA-B27 serotype is found in more than 90% of ankylosing spondylitis patients. HLA genes have been extensively investigated in
the clinic and are screened for organ transplant fitness screening or DNA fingerprinting.
Gardnerella vaginalis is a facultatively anaerobic gram-variable rod that can cause bacterial vaginosis in some women as a
result of a disruption in the normal vaginal microflora. While typically isolated in genital cultures,
it may also be detected in other samples from
blood, urine, and pharynx. Although G. vaginalis is a major species present in bacterial vaginosis, it can also be isolated from women without
any signs or symptoms of infection.
The AccuPower® HLA-B27 Real-Time PCR Kit is an in vitro diagnostic kit designed for the detection of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)
serotype B27 related to ankylosing spondylitis through real-time PCR using Exicycler™ 96.
