RHA Kit HPV SPF10-LiPA25, version 1

Intended use
Sensitive HPV detection in cervical scrapes, biopsies and formalin fixed paraffin embedded samples.

The DNA ELISA kit HPV SPF10, version 1 is an in vitro PCR DNA Elisa (PCR/DEIA) for the qualitative and highly sensitive detection of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) originating from the anogenital tract. Based on the high analytical sensitivity of the assay, this kit is particularly suited for epidemiological and vaccine related studies, using both cervical scrapes and biopsy specimens. This kit detects more than 40 HPV genotypes and is designed to be used in combination with the RHA kit HPV SPF10LiPA25, version 1 for HPV genotyping of PCR/DEIA positive samples. The test should not be used for clinical patient management.

Summary and explanation
Human papillomaviruses are small viruses containing a double-stranded, circular DNA genome of approximately 7,900 base pairs. The viral genome contains early (E), late (L) genes and an untranslated control region. At present, more than 100 different HPV types have been identified based on differences in DNA sequence. HPV types can be subdivided into mucosal types, which can infect anogenital and oraloropharyngeal mucosa, and cutaneous (skin) HPV types. Among the HPV types infecting the anogenital epithelia, a subset of 18 HPV types have been classified as high-risk or probably high-risk for causing alterations of the cervical mucosa and ultimately cervical cancer in women. The DNA ELISA kit HPV SPF10, version 1 allows an easy, reliable and highly sensitive detection of relevant HPV genotypes originating from the anogenital tract.

Principles of the procedure
The DNA ELISA kit HPV SPF10, version 1 is based on an initial PCR followed by a hybridization detection assay (DNA-Elisa or DEIA). During the PCR, the amplified DNA fragments are labeled with biotin. The biotinylated PCR products are captured in a streptavidin-coated microplate well. Next, the non-biotinylated complementary strands are removed by incubation with denaturation solution and washing. After washing, hybridization takes place with a cocktail of labeled HPV-specific probes. The label is detected with a conjugate, which is visualized by a substrate. The presence of HPV DNA in the tested sample is determined by comparing the optical density of the PCR product to that of a cut-off value.
