DiaSorin Molecular Pneumocystis Jirovecii Primer Pair

DiaSorin Molecular has introduced a Pneumocystis jirovecii primer pair for use in laboratory-developed molecular tests. This analyte-specific reagent can be used for the amplification and detection of the P. jirovecii mtLSU gene with a CFR610- and BHQ-2-labeled probe and forward and reverse primers. This is DiaSorin's first fungal infectious disease target, and the new primer pair adds to the company's menu of more than 60 molecular reagents for the detection of bacterial and viral targets, and human genetic mutations.
