PCR Products

Among gram-negative bacteria carbapenemase-producing species represent an increasing threat worldwide. Especially within the Enterobacteriaceae group widespread aliates like E. coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae show a tremendous varitey of resistancemediating carbapenemase genes. But even in other species like Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Acinetobacter baumannii variable carbapenem resistances can be found.  From an epidemiologic point of view distinct molecular entities additionally dier from country to country.  Thus the KPC enzymes - meanwhile relevant to several Enterobacteriaceae - emerge predominantly e.g. overall in the USA and in a remarkable quantity in Brasil, China, Israel, Italy and Greece. Indeed the Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase KPC, as well as the Verona integron-encoded metallo--lactamase (VIM), New Delhi metallo--lactamase (NDM) and OXA-48 number among the most important carbapenenmases in a global perspective. Worth mentioning that OXA-48 followed by KPC and VIM-1 is most commonly identi^_ed in Germany accompanied by a steady rise of NDM-1 in recent years.

Elispot Complete Solution

Test principle and Antigens The EBV-EliSpot is a method to detect EBV specific T-cells. Therefore peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBMCs) have to be isolated from heparinized blood. Then PBMCs are stimulated with EBV specific antigens.

EBNA and LMP peptides in the latent mix and BZLF1, BRLF1, BMRF1 in the lytic mix. The stimulation leads to a secretion of Interferon gamma by EBV specific T-cells which is visualised as a spot in the well after several washing and staining steps.

By counting the spots with an AID EliSpot Reader the number of cytokine producing cells can be determined.

The EliSpot can also be used to Borrelia specific T-cells using specific antigens as tagets.

It can also be used to detect Interferon gamma, Interleukin 2, 4, 5, 10 , 17, and the detection of specific B-cells by Human IgG, IgA, or IgM.


Immunoblots

AID offers a unique Scanning System for the acquisition, storage and evaluation of Immunoblots (western blots) and DNA-stripes. You don´t have to store the blots physically, once they are electronically acquired. This will increase the interserial comparability and reproducibility of your findings in a significant way.
