mericon S. aureus Kit

For real-time PCR detection of Staphylococcus aureus in food or animal feed
  • Highly sensitive and specific detection of S. aureus DNA
  • Streamlined detection protocol
  • Dedicated mericon bacterial DNA isolation kits available
  • PCR run time of 73 minutes on the QIAGEN Rotor-Gene Q
  • Full license for PCR without additional costs
The mericon S. aureus Kit is designed for the target-specific detection of S. aureus DNA in food, animal feed, and pharmaceutical products. The assay uses a real-time PCR-based protocol and forms part of the comprehensive QIAGEN food testing portfolio, which also features dedicated sample preparation kits and assays for ingredient authentication and GMO DNA detection. The mericon S. aureus assay performs optimally on the Rotor-Gene Q, but has also been validated for block thermal cyclers.
