MGB Alert® ASRs
ELITech Molecular Diagnostics provides high-value Real-Time PCR molecular diagnostics reagents. ELITech Molecular Diagnostics extends the use of MGB Probe technology to provide molecular labs an advanced alternative for real-time PCR based assays. By leveraging the benefits of our proprietary probe technology we provide molecular labs more powerful tools for detecting nucleic acid sequences of organisms associated with disease. Our ASR products utilize this unique technology for the detection of viral targets commonly found in organ transplant testing, opportunistic infections and infectious diseases.
ELITe MGBTM Probes have been designed with the proprietary Minor Groove Binder (MGB) protein, SuperbasesTM and Eclipse® Dark Quencher technologies. Our patented technology features shorter, overlapping probes that efficiently and accurately detect target DNA sequences, while offering greater sensitivity, specificity and low background fluorescence levels. During Real-Time PCR, ELITe MGBTM Probes remain intact enabling to perform melt curve analysis. By analyzing the melt–curve profile following each PCR, specificity and accuracy of the quantitative analysis can be routinely assessed.
