MGB Alert® Candida auris with echinocandin resistance

The MGB Alert Candida auris with echinocandin resistance RUO Detection Reagent includes a set of two primers, a duplex stabilizing quencher (“DSQ”) probe specific to a conserved region of the FKS1 gene, and an MGB Pleiades hybridization probe targeting the echinocandin resistance associated S639F mutation region of the same amplicon.

C. auris is classified in the highest “Critical Priority Group” in the 2022 WHO Fungal Priority Pathogens List.1

Our research use only‡  materials feature:

  • Pre-configured 20X mixes of primers and probes

M400920 MGB Alert C. auris with echinocandin resistance RUO Detection Reagent 48 3-color 20X mix of primers and probes to detect Candida auris and echinocandin resistance mutations, and an internal control


Innovative.  MGB Alert reagents utilize our original minor groove binder probe technology, and feature flexibility of PCR-based detection and/or melt curve analysis. DSQ Alert™ reagents incorporate our proprietary duplex stabilizing quencher (DSQ), a next step in MGB probe chemistry.

Flexible. Our reagents can be used on the ELITe InGenius® and ELITe BeGenius® instrument systems, and on most open channel platforms. Let us help create the right workflow for your lab.

Responsive. We frequently anticipate and nimbly respond to market needs as they arise. Let us know what you’d like to add to your own real-time PCR menu.
