Xpert Ebola Assay, Kit/10

Indicative Price 198.00 USD

General description:
The Xpert Ebola Assay is a real time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test intended for the qualitative detection of RNA from the Ebola Zaire virus (detected in the West Africa outbreak in 2014) in EDT venous whole blood, peripheral blood from finger-stick, or buccal swab from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors.

Results are for the presumptive identification of Ebola Zaire virus. The definitive identification of Ebola Zaire virus infection requires additional testing and confirmation procedures in consultation with public health or other authorities for whom reporting is required. Only clinical laboratory personnel who have received specific training on the use of the Xpert Ebola Assay on the GeneXpert Instrument Systems can perform this test.

Technical specifications:
The 95% limit of detection of the assay was found to be 82.0 RNA copies/reaction, 95% CI 39.7 to 3193.6 copies/reaction.
Format: RT-PCR
