PathoDetect HPV Kit to detect HPV (Type 16/18) by PCR
Cervical cancer kills around 72,000 women in India every year, more than 26% of the 275,000 deaths worldwide. The primary underlying cause of cervical cancer is infection with human papillomavirus (HPV).There are multiple types of HPV, divided into “low risk” and “high risk” types. Low risk types cause warts and high risk types can cause lesions or cancer. High Risk HPV types 16 and 18 are responsible for about 70% of all cervical cancer cases worldwide. Early detection of HPV helps in prevention of disease.
Mylab HPV Detection Kit:
The Mylab Discovery solutions PathoDetectTM HPV PCR Detection Kit (type 16/18) is an in vitro diagnostic kit designed for detection of both Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) type 16 and 18 DNA extracted from variety of human samples including cervical swabs, cervico-vaginal samples, tissue etc. This diagnostic test kit utilizes the RT-PCR for HPV 16/18 detection.
A combination of validated primers, hydrolysis probes, and hot-start DNA polymerase ensures that the kit leads to highly-specific and ultrasensitive results in a single step.
