The Quick SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Kit is a real-time reverse transcription PCR (rRT-PCR) test for the qualitative detection of RNA from the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) which is responsible for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The Quick SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Kit targets a region of the viral nucleocapsid (N) gene and a host-specific target region (human RNase P gene) to assess sample quality. The kit also includes CV Positive Control that enable assay performance monitoring, and a No-Template Control to confirm the absence of contamination in the reagents.
The Quick SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Kit can be used on purified RNA samples isolated from upper respiratory and lower respiratory systems.
The Quick SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Kit has High Sensitivity, with a Limit of Detection as low as 10 viral genome equivalent copies per reaction, a fast turnaround time of less than 2 hours, and a simple workflow in which RNA is simply added to the Quick SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Kit reagent and directly analyzed.
Due to its simplicity, set-up up can be performed in an automation and it is compatible with high-throughput platforms. The kit is compatible with multiple Real-Time PCR instruments capable of detecting HEX/VIC and Quasar 670/Cy5 fluorophores and technical support is available for all steps of the setup process and data interpretation.
|Compatibility||Compatible with automated and high-throughput workflows.|
|Equipment Required||Real-Time PCR Instruments capable of detecting HEX/VIC and Quasar® 670/Cy5 fluorophores. Adjustments of the RT-PCR parameters may be necessary for instruments different than the CFX96 Touch from Bio-Rad.|
|Input Quality||Purified RNA free of enzymatic inhibitors.|
|Processing Time||≤ 2 hours from set up to results.|
|Reagents||Complete and ready to use master mix.|
|Registration Status||CE-IVD Marked|
|Sample Input Material||Purified RNA from upper respiratory and lower respiratory systems.|
This test detects specifically SARS-CoV-2 and cannot be used to detect other viruses or pathogens.
If using RT-PCR instruments different than the CFX96 Touch from Bio-Rad, this problem can be solved by adjusting the RT-PCR parameters (e.g. baseline threshold, temperature ramp, …). This problem may also indicate incorrect plate set up of the compromise of Quick SARS-CoV-2 reagents.
With a limit of detection(LoD) as low as 10 GEC/reaction the Quick SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Kit outperforms most of the SARS-CoV-2 molecular tests present on the market. In addition, the detection of a host target (human Rnase P) allow the identification of insufficient samples, which other tests may classify as negative; this further reduce the chances of the false negative results.
