Dermatophytosis are mycotic infections of the skin, hair and nails caused by filamentous microscopic fungi belonging to the genera Candida, Trichophyton, Microsporum and Epidermophyton. These infections are very common in the population (about 22% in European countries). Mycological diagnosis by conventional culture takes several weeks, unlike the molecular biology test proposed by Dendris, which can detect all the pathogens responsible for dermatophytosis in a single analysis while providing a rapid result. The medical service rendered of our solution considerably reduces the time of detection and identification (24 hours compared to 3-4 weeks) and its sensitivity is 30% higher than the culture.

Dendris with its molecular biology kit, based on DNA microarray technology, offers results in about 5 hours to cover the 12 fungi most responsible for dermatophytosis.

The kit includes:
– all reagents and consumables needed for sample pre-treatment, 18S/ITS combined PCR and hybridization
