Ad5 Type C Detection Kits

Adenoviruses are double-stranded DNA, non-enveloped icosahedral viruses with a size of 60-90 nm. Adenoviruses represent the largest non-enveloped viruses (around 30-38Kbp) with a unique fiber associated with each penton base of the capsid that helps in its attachment to the host cell via the coxsackie-adenovirus receptor on the surface of the host cell. There are 51 immunologically distinct human adenovirus serotypes that can cause human infections ranging from respiratory disease (mainly species HAdV-B and C), and conjunctivitis (HAdV-B and D), to gastroenteritis (HAdV-F serotypes 40 and 41). Adenoviruses are unusually stable to chemical or physical agents and adverse pH conditions, allowing for prolonged survival outside of the body and water. Adenoviruses are primarily spread via respiratory droplets, however they can also be spread by fecal routes as well. Human Adenovirus Type C species contains 4 different serotypes: 1, 2, 5 and 6, and these adenoviruses are known to cause respiratory infections in humans.

There are 2 kits available for the detection of Ad5 Type C:

Ad5 Type C TaqMan PCR Kit
  • PCR control to monitor for PCR inhibition and validate the quality
  • Master Mix for the target and PCR control detection
  • Primer and Probe mix
  • Positive control and a negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
Ad5 Type C End-Point PCR Kit
  • Master Mix and primers for the specific amplification of a region of the Ad5 Type C genome
  • Positive control and a negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
  • Loading dye and a DNA ladder to facilitate analysis of the results

For research use only and NOT intended for in vitro diagnostics.

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All kit components should be stored at -20°C upon arrival. Repeated thawing and freezing (> 2 x) of the Master Mix, Control Master Mix and Positive Control should be avoided, as this may affect the performance of the assay. If the reagents are to be used only intermittently, they should be frozen in aliquots. All reagents can be stored for 1 year at -20°C without showing any reduction in performance.
