MEASURING OR TESTING PROCESSES INVOLVING ENZYMES OR MICRO-ORGANISMS ( immunoassay G01N 33/53 ) ; COMPOSITIONS OR TEST PAPERS THEREFOR ; PROCESSES OF PREPARING SUCH COMPOSITIONS ; CONDITION RESPONSIVE CONTROL IN MICROBIOLOGICAL OR ENZYMOLOGICAL PROCESSES
NOTE
-
This subclass does not cover the observation of the progress or of the result of processes specified in this subclass by any of the methods specified in groups G01N 3/00 to G01N 29/00 , which is covered by subclass G01N.

In this subclass, the following expression is used with the meaning indicated:
"involving", when used in relation to a substance, includes the testing for the substance as well as employing the substance as a determinant or reactant in a test for a different substance.


Attention is drawn to Notes (1) to (3) following the title of class C12.

In this subclass, test media are classified in the appropriate group for the relevant test process.

Documents describing the use of an electrode for analysis of a specific analyte are classified in C12Q 1/001 or subgroups and not according to the last place rule

Documents relating to new peptides, e.g. enzymes, or new DNA or its corresponding mRNA, encoding for the peptides, and their use in measuring or testing processes are classified in subclass C07K or in group C12N 9/00 according to the peptides, with the appropriate indexing codes relating to their use in diagnostics. However where the new nucleic acids are principally used in diagnostic processes, e.g. PCR, hybridisation reactions, the documents are also classified in group C12Q 1/68

When classifying in groups C12Q 1/68 to C12Q 1/70 it is desirable to classify with symbols from groups C12Q 2500/00 to C12Q599/00 , relating to relevant technical features of the invention, using Combination Sets.

In groups C12Q 1/6876 - C12Q 1/6895 and C12Q 1/70 - C12Q 1/708 it is desirable to add the indexing codes C12Q 2600/00 to C12Q 2600/178 which reflect the use of the product in combination with the virus groups only if the application refers to products.
