Human Pathogen Detection

Norgen’s Detection Kits are designed for the detection of pathogens and viruses for research use only and not for use in diagnostic procedures unless otherwise specified. Some products are also available CE marked for in vitro diagnostic use. These products are labelled with a Dx catalogue number. Please note that these CE marked kits are not available for sale in all geographic regions, including the USA.

All kits were developed and validated to be used with the following PCR instruments:

  • Qiagen Rotor-Gene Q
  • BioRad CFX96 Touch™ Real-Time PCR Detection System
  • QuantStudioTM 7 Pro Real-Time PCR System

Kits are compatible with most commercially available PCR detection systems. Please see kit protocol for more details on compatibility.

Detection Kits are Available in TaqMan Format:
