AmpliTest Ancylostoma duodenale

(Real Time PCR)


Duodenal hookworm (Ancylostoma duodenale ) is a human parasite of the nematode type. An adult individual is less than 2 cm long and has a light pink body. He lives in the duodenum. Infection occurs by swallowing the egg present in water or on unwashed fruits and vegetables. The larvae can drill through the skin into blood vessels, e.g. through the skin of the feet of barefoot people. Duodenal hookworm feeds on duodenal epithelium and blood sucked out of the duodenal walls. Infections cause anemia and disease called ancylostomosis. Prolonged infection by numerous parasites may lead to death. Ancylostoma duodenale occurs in the subtropical regions, very rarely in southern Europe.

AmpliTest Ancylostoma duodenale (Real Time PCR) test is designed to detect DNA sequences specific for hookworm Ancylostoma duodenale in DNA preparations obtained from feces of an infected individual (human or animal). The Real Time PCR reaction is a duplex-type. Hookworm DNA is detected in the FAM channel. The second channel (HEX) serves for detection of the internal control. Controls included into the test (recombinant DNAs) allow for monitoring the correctness of the Real Time PCR reaction.
