Abstract��OBJECTIVE To develop a DNA detection kit for identification of Fetus Cervi, evaluate the quality indexes including specificity, stability, sensitivity and repeatability, and inspect the qualities of commercial Fetus Cervi samples. METHODS The Fetus Cervi DNA test kit was developed and modified using the classical DNA extraction and PCR identification method. The genomic DNAs of Fetus Cervi and counterfeit goods were extracted by the kit and PCR technique was performed to identify the authenticity. The purity of DNA was detected by UV spectrophotometer. Finally, commercially available Fetus Cervi samples were verified. RESULTS The kit was proved to be effective after 20 times of repeated frozen-thawing and it could be stored at -20 �� for 1 year. The DNA could be detected when the primary solution was diluted by 200 times. The specificity test confirmed that the 15 samples were authentic Fetus Cervi, and 7 were counterfeit. The specificity of the kit was 100%. The repetitive experiments showed that the average intra-assay CV% and inter-assay CV% of the kit were 2.32% and 2.56%, respectively. CONCLUSION The amount and purity of the nucleic acids extracted by the DNA detection kit can meet the requirement for identification of Fetus Cervi, and the kit has good specificity, high sensitivity and good stability, so it is suitable for the rapid detection of Fetus Cervi.
