JCV Detection Kits

The JC virus (JCV) is a type of human polyomavirus and belongs to the family Papovaviridae. JCV is a double-stranded DNA virus, and is genetically similar to BK virus and SV40. The virus is very common in the general population and it is believed that most people acquire JCV in childhood or adolescence. Typically the infection is subclinical and no of consequence in children with healthy immune systems. The initial site of infection may be the tonsils or the gastrointestinal tract, and the virus then remains latent in the gastrointestinal tract. JCV can also infect the tubular epithelial cells in the kidneys, where it continues to reproduce, shedding virus particles in the urine. Also, JCV can cross the blood-brain barrier into the central nervous system. JCV is known to cause the usually fatal progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) by destroying oligodendrocytes in the brain in immunodeficient or immunosuppressed individuals. However, it has not been established whether PML is the result of a primary infection with JCV in a person with impaired immunity or whether it follows reactivation of latent virus. JC virus is also the primary cause of nephropathy (kidney disease) in people who have received a kidney transplant and are on immunosuppressive therapy.

There are 2 kits available for the detection of JCV:

JCV 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
JCV 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

JCV 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
JCV 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

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.
