Description: Echinococcus multilocularis is a small cyclophyllid tapeworm found extensively in the northern hemisphere. Infection with E. multilocularis results in a disease known as alveolar echinococcosis, which is characterized by the production of small cysts that spread throughout the internal organs of the infected animal. This parasite commonly infects canid species but it can also be found in humans. Echinococcus multilocularis qPCR Kit is designed for the in vitro detection of E. multilocularis genomes. The kit is built to have the broadest possible detection profile whilst remaining specific to E. multilocularis. 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 E. multilocularis genomes based on a comprehensive bioinformatic analysis with all reference data within the NCBI database. Other closely related species are not detected. 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 Vet, Food & Pharma). 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 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.
