Description: Zika virus (ZIKV) is an RNA virus that belongs to the family Flaviviridae . ZIKV is spread mostly by the bite of an infected mosquito. It can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus, which can cause certain birth defects. It can also be sexually transmitted. Zika virus RT-qPCR Kit is designed for the in vitro detection of ZIKV genomes. The kit is built to have the broadest possible detection profile whilst remaining specific to ZIKV. Thus, this kit has been designed for the specific (inclusivity) and exclusive (exclusivity) in vitro detection of this species. The primers and probe sequences have very high (>95%) homology with a broad range of ZIKV genomes based on a comprehensive bioinformatic analysis with all reference data within the NCBI database at the time of design. Due to the inherent instability of RNA viral genomes, it is not possible to guarantee the detection of all clinical isolates. If required, a complementary kit for the detection of an endogenous gene of the species from which samples are being extracted is available for purchase(see Human). The complementary usage of an Endogenous Detection reaction provides a solid confirmation that nucleic acids were properly extracted from the selected biological matrix. If you require further information or have a specific question about the detection profile of this kit, please send an e-mail to info@nzytech.com and our scientific team will answer your question. This kit is designed to be used by trained users in a suitable molecular biology laboratory environment.
