SARS-CoV-2 Blue-LAMP Detection Kit

cat. no. E0460

SARS-CoV-2 Blue-LAMP Detection KIT is designed to detect the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in samples from patients with symptoms of COVID-19 infection. The purified genetic material of the virus from swab samples taken from the throat, nasopharynx or saliva, etc. is amplified using the LAMP reaction -isothermal amplification of nucleic acids and detected visually by changing the color of the reaction from violet to blue. Virus identification is based on the amplification of a highly conserved region in the ORF1ab gene characteristic of SARS-CoV-2. Additionally, the kit includes a specific control for the human ACTB gene (gene encoding beta-actin), which makes it possible to verify both the correctness of the collected swab and the quality of the purified RNA, and a positive control of the reaction to the Lambda phage sequence, which enables confirming the correctness of the test execution. The kit does not show any cross-reactions with other microorganisms causing respiratory diseases.
