Pneumocystis jirovecii Detection Kits

Pneumocystis jirovecii is a yeast-like fungus that causes Pneumocystis jirovecii Pneumonia (originally known as Pneumocystis carinii Pneumonia or PCP). PCP is the most common opportunistic infection in patients with HIV/AIDS. Species of Pneumocystis are commonly found in the lungs of healthy individuals. In fact, most children are believed to be exposed by age 3 or 4 years. Studies have suggested that P. jirovecii is communicable, possibly via airborne transmission. Disease usually develops in patients whose cellular immunity and humoral immunity are defective. Even with the widespread use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), there is still a high prevalence of PCP in HIV patients.

There are 2 kits available for the detection of Pneumocystis jirovecii:

Pneumocystis jirovecii 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
Pneumocystis jirovecii 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

Pneumocystis jirovecii 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
Pneumocystis jirovecii 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.
