Aspergillus niger TaqMan PCR Detection Kits

Aspergillus niger is a fungus and one of the most common species of the genus Aspergillus. It causes a disease called black mold on certain fruits and vegetables such as grapes, onions, and peanuts, and is a common contaminant of food. It causes stem rot of Dracaena, root stalk rot of Sansevieria and boll rot of cotton. It has also been implicated in the spoilage of cashew kernels, dates, figs, vanilla pods and dried prunes. It is ubiquitous in soil and is commonly reported from indoor environments, where it produces characteristic black colonies. Some strains of A. niger have also been reported to produce potent mycotoxins called ochratoxins. Methods for the rapid and sensitive detection of the pest would be valuable to ensure food quality and protection of individuals from the possibility of ingesting potentially hazardous myco- or ochratoxins.

Kit Specifications

You have selected: Cat. TM32950

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All kit components can be stored for 2 years after the date of production without showing any reduction in performance.

All kit components should be stored at -20°C upon arrival. Repeated thawing and freezing (> 2 x) of the 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.
