Contact us for more information.

The RealStar® VZV PCR Kit 1.0 is an in vitro diagnostic test, based on real-time PCR technology, for the detection and quantification of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) specific DNA. These two test systems, were developed and validated to be use with various real-time PCR instruments.

Key Features:
  • Detection and Quantification of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) specific DNA
  • Parallel Testing within Herpes- and Polyomavirus Test Kit Panel
  • Ready to use Kit including Internal Control and Quantification Standards
  • CE-IVD marked in vitro Diagnostic Test

Dilution series of VZV specific DNA, ranging from 100 to 108 copies/µl, detected in the FAM detection channel [A]. The Internal Control is detected in the JOE detection channel [B].
