G-Sphere Standards Go Viral
G-Sphere Standard for Molecular Norovirus Assays
The G-Sphere range of Molecular Standards from Phthisis Diagnostics has expanded to include both parasites and viruses. Synthetic controls for Norovirus , both the common GI and GII genogroups, are now available in the UK, exclusively from Alpha Laboratories.G-Sphere controls provide stable, consistent, safe and abundant material for use in molecular applications such as PCR. Part of the Simply Molecular range, G-Sphere standards contain double stranded DNA genes for parasites or single stranded RNA for viruses which have been designed and synthetically created to serve as genetic surrogate control material.
Ready-to-use and non-hazardous, G-Sphere Standards eliminate the need to extract DNA or RNA from potentially infectious samples. Furthermore, since these Molecular Standards are produced in accordance with FDA cGMP regulations, consistent quality and reproducibility is ensured.
The G-Sphere range also includes standards targeted against 12 different species of Cryptosporidium , 4 types of Plasmodium and other intestinal parasites such as Entamoeba and Microsporidia.
