SARS-CoV-2 qRT-PCR Detection KIT

cat. no. E0430

SARS-CoV-2 qRT-PCR Detection KIT is designed to detect SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in samples from patients with symptoms of COVID-19 infection. The purified genetic material of the virus from throat, nasopharyngeal, saliva, etc. is amplified by real-time RT-PCR and detected using SARS-CoV-2-specific probes, labeled with fluorescent dyes. Virus identification is based on highly conserved regions in the ORF1ab and NP genes characteristic for SARS-CoV-2. In addition, the kit includes primers specific for the human ACTB gene (gene encoding beta-actin), which makes it possible to verify the correctness of the collected swab and the quality of RNA purification. The test meets the requirements of the WHO recommendation “Laboratory testing for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in suspected human cases” dated March 2, 2020. The kit shows no cross-reactions against other microorganisms causing respiratory diseases.
