AccuPower® HPV 16&18 Real-Time PCR Kit
The global incidence and death from cervical cancer rank the second and third highest respectively among women.
The main cause of cervical cancer is Human papillomavirus (HPV) in the cervix. There are multiple types of HPV, sometimes called
"low risk" and "high risk" types. Low risk types cause warts and high risk types can cause lesions or cancer. According to the
study with 196 patients in cervical adenocarcinoma, HPV genotype 18 is responsible for cervical cancer in 54.2% of the patients; HPV 16, in 44.1%.
The AccuPower® HPV 16&18 Real-Time PCR Kit is an in vitro diagnostic kit designed for the simultaneous detection of Human papillomavirus (HPV)
type 16 and 18 DNA in human cervical swab samples through real-time PCR using ExiStation™ Molecular Diagnostic System or Exicycler™ 96.
