Product Details

InviScreen® Cashew DNA Detection Kit provides a real-time PCR method for the qualitative detection of cashew (Anacardium occidentale) DNA in food, feed, and surface swabs. The assay is based on the amplification of species-specific DNA using hydrolysis probes, which can be performed with a variety of food matrices. The kit allows simultaneous amplification of the allergenic target species and an internal amplification control (IAC) to exclude false negative results due to PCR inhibition. The real-time PCR method can be performed in commonly available PCR instruments with FAM and VIC/HEX fluorescence channels. Under optimal conditions, the kit provides highly sensitive detection of at least 1 mg allergenic substance / kg food sample.


Sample preparation For DNA extraction the use of InviSorb® Spin Plant Mini Kit (Art. No. 1037100300) is recommended
