ARGENE®

R-GENE® Real-time PCR assays

Built on more than 25 years of expertise in virological diagnosis, ARGENE® is an innovative and comprehensive range of ready-to-use real-time PCR assays for the diagnosis of infectious diseases

 

R-GENE® Real-Time PCR assays

R-GENE® assay ranges provide an extensive menu of parameters. Offering sensitivity and specificity, R-GENE® assays enable to provide rapid and reliable results for the management of bacterial and viral infection. Time-to-results for all kits is within 2 hours (after extraction).

Standardized

  • Uniform processing within the R-GENE® range of products
  • Harmonized protocol for multiple assays in one run
  • Protocol to convert quantification results from copies/mL into IU/mL with WHO International Standards (available for CMV, EBV, B19V, BKV, HHV6)

CE-IVD assays

  • On major extraction platforms (including NUCLISENS® easyMAG® and EMAG®)
  • On major real-time PCR systems
  • On most relevant specimen types

Ease-of-use

  • Just add the extracted sample to the ready-to-use PCR master mix and start the PCR on the appropriate thermocycler
  • Use manual or automated assay setup platform such as ESTREAM®
  • “A la carte” testing

All-inclusive

  • Ready-to-use amplification master mix, Positive control and negative control
  • Internal control or Cell control
  • In quantitative assays, 4 Quantification Standards and 1 Sensitivity Control
