According to WHO, respiratory tract infections are one of the main causes of sickness rate and mortality both at infancy and at older ages. About 70 % of these infections affect the upper respiratory tract and middle ear region.

Diagnosis and treatment of respiratory infections remain the focus of attention among both therapists and pediatricians since these infections account for over 90 % of all outpatients’ complaints, especially during autumn and winter seasons.

Mycoplasma pneumonia is a single-celled Gram-negative microorganism without a cell wall. In terms of structural organization, mycoplasmas lie between bacteria and viruses. They are regarded as hardly-cultivated microorganisms and considered to be superficial parasites of mucosa cells.

Clinical, radiological and laboratory data regarding M.pneumoniae-caused infections are inadequate in order to make an accurate diagnosis based on them. Therefore, laboratory diagnostics should include direct methods (first and foremost PCR) for detecting the microorganism in the biological material.

The Mycoplasma pneumoniae Real-Time PCR Detection Kit is in vitro DNA test, which is intended for the specific identification of Mycoplasma pneumoniae in human biological samples.

Sample: sputum, bronchoalveolar lavage, scrapes and washouts from nasal and oropharynx

DNA extraction: PREP-NA, PREP-GS, PREP-RAPID extraction kits

Certification: RUO

Типы детекции:
Real-time format is designed to detect PCR results during amplification with the help of detecting amplifiers (in real time).
