To ensure sensitivity, the artus HAV TM RT-PCR Kit v2.0 has been optimized to detect low numbers of HAV RNA. The analytical sensitivity of the kit is 0.2 IU/μl in the PCR on the ABI PRISM 7000 SDS and 0.1 IU/μl in the PCR on the ABI PRISM 7700 SDS and the ABI PRISM 7900HT SDS.
For reliable specificity, testing of the artus HAV TM RT-PCR Kit v2.0 was carried out using various HAV strains, including all relevant genotypes (IA, IB, II, IIIA, VII), and related pathogens.
