Product Information

Assay Principle

Biotinylated PCR products are generated from sample material containing extracted HPV DNA. The labeled amplicons are hybridized to subtype specific capture probes immobilized on the LCD-Chip surface. Following a short wash routine, comprising high stringency, visualization of bound amplicons is mediated by an enzyme-substrate cascade. Each LCD-Chip contains eight identical micro arrays separated in small reaction chambers. Each array can be addressed individually, allowing the parallel analysis of eight samples on one chip.


Specificity & Sensitivity

The binding sites for the supplied PCR* primer mixes are well conserved among the recognized HPV types and the probes spotted on the array have been thoroughly evaluated for their type specificity. Two primer sets for PCR amplification are provided. One based on the published and commonly used My11/My09 system and a second, producing shorter amplicons of ~150 bp in length. Due to the shorter fragment length, the primer mix HPV 125 might be the better choice for starting material where degradation could not be excluded. Combining both PCR reactions, the assay is very well suited for the analysis of HPV typ

Detected HPV types



Parallel analysis of eight samples on one LCD-Chip. The array field spacing is compatible with standard multi pipettes.
