English term or phrase: discriminatory probe reagent
This is a technical manual update of a system for nucleic acid testing (NAT) for blood screening.

The line in question reads:
TCR and Probe, Enzyme, Amplification, and **Discriminatory Probe Reagents**

I know that probe reagents are "Sondenreagenzien", but I am unsure about the "discriminatory". Would it be "Trenn-Sondenreagenzien" or "Unterscheidungs-Sondenreagenzien".

Any help appreciated!

German translation:spezifisches Sondenreagenz
Explanation:
Es ist wohl nicht klar, ob der Begriff ursprünglich im Englischen (von einer Firma, die zu ihren Systemen diese Reagenzien mitliefert - Chiron-Novartis) oder im Chinesischen geprägt wurde. Vielleicht helfen die angegebenen URLs weiter....Irgenwie ist ein Sondenreagenz wohl immer spezifisch oder selektiv oder diskriminierend...

... on chemistry that is identical to the HIV-1/HCV assay except that the labeled probes used and, in the case of the HCV discriminatory probe reagent, the HCV-specific labeled oligonucleotides are present at a higher concentration.

Example sentence(s):
  • HIV-1 and HCV discriminatory assays. The discriminatory assays utilize the same three main steps as the multiplex assay (target capture, TMA, and HPA), and the same basic assay procedure is followed. The discriminatory assays are based on chemistry that i
