The TaqMan® Vaginal Microbiota Amplification Control is designed to evaluate the amplification efficacy of the TaqMan® Vaginal Microbiota assays. It is a multi-target plasmid that includes amplicons for each of the qualified TaqMan Vaginal Microbiota assays, as well as control prokaryotic 16S rRNA and human RNase P RPPH1 gene sequences. This plasmid serves as a positive control for the TaqMan Vaginal Microbiota Assay collection. The microbial targets of the included amplicons are listed below.

The TaqMan Vaginal Microbiota Amplification Control can be included in vaginal microbiota profiling experiments to verify assay performance and to assist with troubleshooting.
