PCR detection of HLA-B27

AID HLA B*27 PCR kit – detection of HLA B27 for the differential diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis (AS)

Detection of homozygous and heterozygous AS-risk alleles

It is well known that there is a close connection between the HLA-B*27 allele and ankylosing spondylitis (AS; synonym: Bechterew’s disease). About 90-95% of all patients suffering from AS are HLA-B*27 positive, with a phenotypic frequency of approx. 7-9% in Caucasians.

Because of this high association with the disease, the typifying of HLA-B*27 is suitable for the differential diagnosis of Spondylitis ankylosans. The other seronegative spondylarthritides are also associated to a high percentage with HLA-B*27.

AID HLA-B*27 Kit enables the detection of risk allele for ankylosing spondylitis.



  • Differentiation between homozygous and heterozygous AS-risk allele HLA-B*27
