DSQ Alert™ Histoplasma/Blastomyces

The DSQ Alert Histoplasma/Blastomyces RUO Detection Reagent is a multiplex real-time PCR reagent designed with DSQ hybridization probe chemistry, the next generation of MGB hydrolysis probes, to detect and distinguish DNA from Histoplasma capsulatum, Blastomyces dermatitidis, and Blastomyces gilchristii.

Histoplasma species is identified in the 2022 WHO Fungal Priority Pathogens List among its “High Priority Group”.1

Our research use onlymaterials feature:

  • Pre-configured 20X mixes of primers and probes
  • Multiplexed primer and probe sets including an internal control
  • Reagents manufactured with cGMP oligonucleotides

Innovative.  DSQ Alert products incorporate our proprietary duplex stabilizing quencher (DSQ), a universal quencher and MGB fused into one hybrid molecule. DSQ probes offer DNA duplex stabilization and specificity with better quenching.

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.
