PathoSEEK® 5-Color Aspergillus Multiplex - AriaMx (200 rxn)

SKU: 420148
Storage Conditions: -20C


The PathoSEEK 5-Color Aspergillus Multiplex (AriaMx) Detection Assay is used to detect and speciate four pathogenic species of Aspergillus (A. fumigatus, A. flavus, A. niger, and A. terreus) in cannabis flower, concentrates, and infused products. 
PathoSEEK Detection Assays are multiplex tests based on on gene amplification and detection by quantitative PCR. Each PathoSEEK Detection Assay contains primers and probes specific for the target species(es) as well as an internal cannabis control. The Aspergillus species will be read on the following fluorophores:
  • Cannabis DNA - HEX
  • A. niger - ROX
  • A. flavus - Cy5
  • A. fumigatus - FAM
  • A. terreus - ATTO 425
The PathoSEEK 5-Color Aspergillus Multiplex (AriaMx) Detection Assay was designed for use on the Agilent AriaMx Real-Time PCR instrument, and it must be used with the qPCR Master Kit v3 (SKU: 420201) and the Aspergillus Multiplex Control Version 2 (SKU: 420330), see related items below.


Specifically designed for use across the cannabis and hemp matrices, including flower, concentrates, and a range of infused products, the PathoSEEK platform uses qPCR technology, which has been proven in the food and healthcare industries, to be the most accurate, repeatable, and automatable product safety testing methodology. 

All Medicinal Genomics reagents are manufactured in a facility certified to ISO 9001 standards. All lots of reagents are functionally tested in house and Certificates of Analysis (COAs) are available upon request.

AOAC Certified 
You can use the PathoSEEK 5-Color Aspergillus Multiplex assays with confidence because they were specifically designed for use on cannabis matrices and the AOAC PTM has certified its use for:
  • Next-day results. 24-hour enrichment for cannabis flower
  • Multiple matrices. Cannabis flower, infused edibles, and concentrates

Cannabis DNA Internal Control
All PathoSEEK qPCR assay internal controls target a sequence in the cannabis genome, which helps to ensure plant cells have been lysed to release pathogens growing endophytically, DNA survived extraction intact, and there is no contamination in your Assay Master Mix.

Primers and Probes Designed for Cannabis
All PathoSEEK primers and probes were tested in-silico against the cannabis genome to ensure no cross-reactivity. Other platforms that use primers and probes borrowed from food testing may inadvertently hit the cannabis genome.

Universal Cycle Time
All PathoSEEK assays use the same cycle program, so you can run several different assays simultaneously. 

Turnkey Automation
DNA purification and qPCR setup can be fully automated with turnkey solutions from Agilent Technologies, Hamilton Robotics, and MGI/BGI.
