AccuPower® Staphylococcus epidermidis Real-Time PCR Kit

AccuPower® Staphylococcus epidermidis Real-Time PCR Kit is a product that can specifically detect Staphylococcus epidermidis (S. epidermidis) by real-time PCR. S. epidermidis is a gram-positive bacterium, one of 40 species belonging to Staphylococcus. Patients with compromised immune systems are at risk of infection caused by S. epidermidis.

S. epidermidis infection can be a risk for patients using surgical implants due to defective heart valves. When the infection occurs, a biofilm is formed on the implanted device. Antibiotics are rarely effective at removing the biofilm formed by S. epidermidis, and the most common method of treatment is removal or replacement of the infected device.

Features and Benefits

  • Convenience
    All necessary reactants for real-time PCR are included in a tube (i.e., Master Mix Type), allowing the users to perform reaction simply by adding template DNA, Oligo Mix, and DEPC-D.W.

  • Sensitivity
    By using BIONEER’s HotStart Taq DNA Polymerase that minimizes non-specific reactions and maximizes reaction efficiency, only the target gene can be effectively amplified even with a trace amount of template DNA.
