Urine is an ideal clinical specimen because it is excreted in large quantities is non-invasive, and it can be self-sampled. Currently, urine specimens are used in the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases (including STDs), hormone and metabolic disorders, renal diseases, bladder cancer, urinary tract infections (UTIs), and for monitoring recreational drug use. However, urine contains substances such as urea and nucleases that can damage DNA or inhibit the PCR reaction.

Meridian’s new Air-Dryable Direct Urine molecular mixes are unique in that they enable the highly sensitive, very fast detection of target DNA or RNA directly from high concentrations of urine and are sensitive enough to detect arboviruses, such as Chikungunya virus. These mixes have been formulated specifically to overcome the inhibitors found in urine – no further optimization is required aside from the addition of primers and probes. Furthermore, these mixes can be used in a wet format or dried down by oven or air drying to create ambient-temperature stable assays.
