The Amplifluor® ID-Pan-Enterovirus Reagent is designed to evaluate amplified nucleic acid specific to the 5′ UTR of multiple prevalent enteroviral strains. Amplification reactions are performed using a reverse transcription (RT) primer for 1st strand cDNA synthesis, followed by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification utilizing the forward Amplifluor hairpin primer and reverse primer to produce enterovirus-specific fluorescent amplicons. The Amplifluor hairpin primer is labeled with Donor (fluorescein) and Quencher (DABSYL) fluorophores, which produce the high signal to noise ratio observed in the Amplifluor assay. Upon incorporation into new amplicons, the Amplifluor primer is fluorescent, while the fluorescein signal of the unincorporated Amplifluor primer (reported in the instrument′s FAM layer) is quenched (Diagram 1 on product insert ). When performed on a thermal cycler capable of real-time fluorescence detection, the amplification products of the PCR reaction can be monitored directly in a quantitative fashion, allowing evaluation of template detection in a single, closed-tube system with no associated assay procedure. Where required, template standard curves may be employed to quantitatively determine viral RNA load.
The Amplifluor® ID Pan-Enterovirus Reagent is intended for the quantitative or qualitative evaluation of enterovirus RNA generated by a validated in vitro nucleic acid amplification of the 5′ untranslated region (UTR).

Almacenamiento y estabilidad
The Amplifluor® ID Pan-Enterovirus primers must be stored in the dark at -20ºC (or at -80ºC for long term storage). Amplifluor primers are light sensitive. Amplifluor primers may be divided into convenient aliquots and wrapped in foil to minimize light exposure.
Warnings and Precautions:
• Handle all specimens and materials coming in contact with them as potentially infectious materials. Decontaminate with 0.05% sodium hypochlorite (1:100 dilution of household bleach).
• Do not use reagents beyond expiration date.
• Nucleic acids are subject to degradation by nucleases found in the environment and on human surfaces. Clean and cover work surfaces with disposable coverings and wear powder free gloves during all procedures.
• Use pipetting techniques that will deliver correct volumes of reagents in all steps, including pre-wetting aerosol resistant pipette tips. Repeating pipettors should be primed and voided of all air bubbles.
• With nucleic acid amplification, the potential for carry-over contamination is high. Work in a unidirectional flow from workstation to workstation and always use dedicated equipment and aerosol-barrier pipette tips.
