Cryptococcus neoformans Detection Kits

Cryptococcus neoformans is an encapsulated yeast. Infection with C. neoformans is known as cryptococcosis and is the cause of the most common life-threatening meningitis in patients with weakened immune systems, particularly in advanced HIV/AIDS. C. neoformans is commonly found in soil throughout the world. Human infection of C. neoformans occurs via inhalation of aerosolized spores. From the lungs, C. neoformans is spread hematogenously to the Central Nervous System (CNS), resulting in meningoencephalitis. Although the availability of antiretroviral therapy in the developed world has reduced the incidents of cryptococcosis, it is still a major problem in developing countries and is one of the leading causes of death in patients with HIV/AIDS. In fact, one of the major challenges in treating cryptococcosis is that many patients with cryptococcal CNS disease are asymptomatic in terms of cryptococcal pneumonia, making it difficult for early detection.

There are 2 kits available for the detection of Cryptococcus neoformans:

Cryptococcus neoformans TaqMan PCR/RT-PCR Kit, 24 reactions
  • Ready to use format, including Master Mix for the target and PCR control to monitor for PCR inhibition and validate the quality
  • Specific Primer and Probe mix for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Primer and Probe mix
  • Positive and negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
Cryptococcus neoformans TaqMan PCR/RT-PCR Probe/Primer Set and Controls, 100 reactions
  • Specific Primer/Probe mix and Positive Control for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Nuclease-free water
  • Can be used together with Norgen’s PCR/RT-PCR Master Mix (#28007/#28113)or customer supplied master mix

Cryptococcus neoformans End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Kit, 24 reactions
  • Ready to use format, including Master Mix for the target and PCR control to monitor for PCR inhibition and validate the quality
  • Specific Primer mix for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Positive control and a negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
  • Loading dye and a DNA ladder to facilitate qualitative analysis of the results on an agarose gel
Cryptococcus neoformans End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Primer Set and Controls, 100 reactions
  • Specific Primer mix and Positive Control for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Nuclease-free water
  • Can be used together with Norgen’s PCR/RT-PCR Master Mix (#28007/#28113)or customer supplied master mix

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.
