The SureFood® ALLERGEN 4plex Cereals is a real-time PCR test for the direct, qualitative detection and differentiation of specific wheat (Triticum), barley (Hordeum vulgare) and rye (Secale cereale) DNA sequences. Each reaction contains an internal amplification control (IAC).
For DNA preparation, the use of SureFood® PREP Advanced (S1053), protocol 1, is recommended.
The real-time PCR assay can be performed with commonly used real-time PCR instruments, equipped for detection of four fluorescence emissions at the channels FAM, VIC/HEX, ROX and Cy5 at the same time. The technical validation of instruments was performed on Roche LightCycler® 480 II, Qiagen Rotor-Gene Q, Applied Biosystems 7500, Bio-Rad CFX96, R-Biopharm RIDA®CYCLER, Agilent AriaDx and Agilent Mx3005P.
The SureFood® PCR systems are very sensitive and therefore even a small amount of target DNA is sufficient for a successful analysis.
