ParoReal Echinococcus multilocularis



Background: Echinococcus multilocularis is a cyclophyllid tapeworm causing echinococcosis, a disease that affects many canid species including wolves, coyotes, foxes, jackals and domesticated dogs. Humans can also contract this disease. Echinococcus multilocularis requires two types of hosts to mature properly. It is transmitted to intermediate hosts via the ingestion of eggs in infected food. The eggs travel to the lungs, liver, and other internal organs where they develop into multilocular cysts. Finally, Echinococcus multilocularis is transmitted to definitive hosts by means of eating infected, cyst-containing organs. There it becomes attached to the tissues and grows.

ParoReal Echinococcus multilocularis is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of DNA of Echinococcus multilocularis by real-time PCR.

Internal Positive Control (IPC) ÔÇô not included, optional: For exclusion of false-negative interpretation of results caused by PCR inhibition an ingenetix internal positive control assay (ControlReal tests, or Internal Positive Control Assays) can be optionally performed in a multiplex PCR, depending on the PCR-platform. See product description.
– Control
Real tests (order no. RTGMCR-1, 2 or 3) contain primers, a probe and an internal control PCR target included in the assay mix.
Internal Positive Control Assays (order no. RTGMIPC-1, 2 or 3) contain primers, a probe and an internal control PCR target in an extra tube (for control of DNA extraction and PCR inhibition).

ViroReal®, BactoReal® and ParoReal Assays detecting viral, bacterial and parasitic DNA are optimized to run under the same thermal cycling conditions and with the same amplification mix.
