FFPE HPV Characterized
HPV infection has been reported to correlate with several cancer types, especially squamous cell carcinomas originating from head and neck (H&N) as well as cervix tissues. HPVs are classified by genotype, and at least 130 types have been identified by sequencing the gene encoding the major capsid protein L1. High-risk genotypes 16 and 18 are associated with 70% of cervical, and about 80% HPV positive vulval and vaginal carcinoma.
Targeting high-risk HPV mRNA from the E6/E7 oncogenes, which are essential for development of cervical cancer, DiaCarta’s QuantiVirus™ HPV mRNA Test detects HPV oncogenes E6/E7 mRNA from 14 high-risk type (16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 and 68) and genotypes HPV 16 and HPV 18 directly from cervical samples for cervical cancer screening. Using Diacarta’s QuantiVirus™ HPV E6/E7 RNA test, BioChain offers HPV-characterized H&N and cervix squamous cell carcinoma tissue sections from various donors as control slides for scientists in this field of study. Both positive and negative samples are available.Learn more
