Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Real Time RT-PCR Nucleic Acid Detection Kit Add to Cart
|Sample Type:||Broncheoalveolar lavage, Throat swab|
The Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Real Time RT-PCR Nucleic Acid Detection Kit is designed for the qualitative detection of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) nucleocapsid protein N gene in human throat swabs and alveolar lavage. It is based on the PCR method which uses a fluorescent probe and a specific primer to detect two specific regions within the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) nucleocapsid protein N gene.
This molecular panel aids in the detection of viral RNA from SARS-CoV-2, the causative agent of COVID-19. The kit includes 3 primer-probe sets corresponding to those used in the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel (Cat No. 2019-nCoVEUA-01) and a one-step RT-qPCR mix.
Primer-probe sets N1 and N2 detect SARS-CoV-2 specifically, with no expected false positives from other coronaviruses or human microflora. The kit also includes a primer-probe set specific for the human housekeeping gene, ribonuclease P (RNP), to serve as an internal reference to monitor sample collection, RNA extraction, and amplification.
This test is for Research Use Only (RUO).
