AmplifyRP® XRT for Phytoplasma vitis FD (Flavescence Dorée)
Test Label: FAM-labeled target probe
Test Format: AmplifyRP® XRT
Internal Control: Yes - Endogenous
AmplifyRP XRT for Flavescence dorée (FD) is a rapid DNA amplification and detection platform designed for testing grapevines for Candidatus Phytoplasma vitis Flavescence dorée (16SrV-D). This kit includes lyophilized reaction pellets containing the necessary reagents to amplify FD DNA and an exogenous DNA control at a single operating temperature (42 °C).
AmplifyRP XRT is a real-time isothermal DNA amplification and detection system that rapidly amplifies small portions of DNA and offers unrivaled detection capabilities in an easy-to-use testing format. It offers comparable sensitivity and specificity to published PCR methods while eliminating laborious and costly nucleic acid extractions.
The test can be performed virtually anywhere using the battery operated AmpliFire fluorometer. Assay parameters are loaded via barcode and results are automatically displayed as ( + ) or ( - ).
Prior molecular diagnostic experience is not required to perform AmplifyRP XRT tests.
NOTE: This assay requires a fluorometer to work properly.
