Abstract:

The detection of pathogenic microorganisms directly in clinical specimens by molecular methods has been investigated extensively using a variety of nucleic acid probe hybridization, target amplification, and signal-generating formats. Commercial product development has focused on direct diagnosis of blood-borne and sexually transmitted diseases and respiratory pathogens using solid-and solution-phase hybridization with nonisotopic nucleic acid probes and several different target amplification methods, including conventional PCR, strand displacement amplification, transcription-mediated amplification, and, more recently, real-time PCR. Many laboratories are developing their own “home brew” assays for pathogen detection using real-time PCR for organisms not addressed by commercial kits (Table 12.1-4).

PCR primers and probes for the detection of HSV-1 and HSV-2

6-FAM and QUASAR 670 represent the 5' reporter fluorophores for the HSV-1 and the HSV-2 probes, respectively. BHQ-1 and BHQ-2 are the quencher molecules for the HSV-1 and the HSV-2 probes, respectively. These reporter and quencher molecules are covalently linked to the oligonucleotides.
