Q Chip has developed a PCR tool for bacterial identification. Identification using the ReaX Assay 16S beads is based on PCR amplification of the 16S ribosomal RNA gene. ReaX Assay 16S beads contain the reagents required to perform 16S rRNA gene amplification, including a high-performance Taq polymerase, dNTPs and the universal 16S rRNA gene-specific primers 27F and 907R. Only template DNA is required prior to running the PCR protocol. Amplification is confirmed using end point PCR.
