VIASURE Real Time PCR Detection Kits
VIASURE SARS-CoV-2 S gene Real Time PCR Detection Kit is designed for the specific identification and differentiation of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in respiratory samples from patients with signs and symptoms of COVID-19 infection.
This test is intended to be used as an aid in the identification in the diagnosis of COVID-19 in combination with patient’s clinical signs and symptoms and epidemiological risk factors.
The assay uses the BD MAX™ System for automated extraction of RNA and subsequent real-time PCR employing the reagents provided combined with universal reagents and disposables for the BD MAX™ System. RNA from respiratory specimens is detected using fluorescent reporter dye probes specific for SARS-CoV-2.
In December 2019, some people that worked at or lived around the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, have presented pneumonia of unknown cause.
Deep sequencing analysis of the respiratory samples indicated a novel coronavirus, which was named firstly 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and lately SARS-CoV-2.
VIASURE SARS-CoV-2 S gene Real Time PCR Detection Kit is designed for the identification of SARS-CoV-2 in respiratory samples. The detection is done in one step real time RT-PCR format where the reverse transcription and the subsequent amplification of specific target sequence occur in the same reaction well.
The isolated RNA target is transcribed generating complementary DNA by reverse transcriptase which is followed by the amplification of a conserved region of S gene using specific primers and a fluorescent-labeled probe.
