SARS-CoV-2 Detection RT-PCR Testing Kit
QuantuMDx’ SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Detection assay is a real-time reverse transcriptase (rtRT)-PCR assay that has been developed using advanced bioinformatics to maximise performance. The assay has been designed with the most up-to-data sequence information to ensure 100% inclusivity of all known SARS-CoV-2 sequences. The assay is also re-evaluated in silico on a periodic basis to ensure 100% inclusivity versus all available SARS-CoV-2 sequences.
Our SARS-CoV-2 assay has been CE-IVD marked under the in vitro Diagnostics Directive (98/79/EC). We have also applied to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorisation.
Key Features & Benefits
Result in 75 mins or less
No cross-reactivity or interference due to common commensal or infectious organisms found in the respiratory tract, both in silico and standard bench testing
100% coverage of all known SARS-CoV-2 sequences at the date of analysis
Highly sensitive, targeting three loci
Can run on multiple platforms (validated on the Qiagen Rotor-Gene Q, Bio-Rad CFX96)
Competitive cost per sample
Our test kits are fully lyophilised allowing for ease of shipment and can be run on properly calibrated standard real-time instruments.
Our SARS-CoV-2 test targets three SARS-Cov-2 genomic loci; the S and N gene and the Orf1 region. The assay has been designed and developed to run on multiple high- and low-throughput PCR platforms that can be calibrated for the fluorophores FAM and HEX.
The QuantuMDx Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Virus coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) Detection Assay is a qualitative assay RT-PCR assay for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 genomic RNA from upper respiratory specimens (e.g. nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs, etc.) collected from individuals who meet criteria for SARS-CoV-2 testing.
Testing of nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs using the QuantuMDx SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Detection Assay has been validated for the BioRad CFX96 Dx, controlled by CFX Manager Dx software v3.1 with equivalence demonstrated for the Qiagen Rotor-Gene Q, controlled by Rotor-Gene Q Series software 2.3.4. The assay should be compatible with other equivalent real-time thermocyclers.
Results are for the presumptive detection and identification of SARS-CoV-2 genomic RNA. SARS-CoV-2 genomic RNA is detectable in upper respiratory specimens during the initial acute phase of the infection and for a time after symptoms have abated. Positive results are indicative of active infection with SARS-CoV-2 but do not rule out co-infections with other viruses or bacteria. Clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine an individual’s infection status. The detection of SARS-CoV-2 genomic RNA may not indicate the definitive cause of disease.
Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as a sole basis for treatment or other care management decisions. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, the individual’s history and epidemiological data and information.
Testing with the QuantuMDx SARS-CoV-2 Detection Assay is intended for use by trained laboratorians who are proficient in performing tests.
Our SARS-CoV-2 detection assay is available now for purchase and we have capacity to produce 2m tests per week.
