Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real Time RT-PCR Kit is used for the qualitative detection of a novel coronavirus, identified in 2019 in Wuhan City, China, in respiratory tract specimens by real time PCR systems.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing illness in people and others that circulate among animals, including camels, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can evolve and infect people and then spread between people such as has been seen with MERS and SARS. The outbreak in Wuhan, China, has been reported to be linked to a large seafood and animal market, suggesting a possible zoonotic origin of the outbreak.
Our supplier Liferiver Bio-Tech quickly developed a fluorescent PCR kit for the new coronavirus (cat. #: RR-0478-02-ZJ). The newly developed kit uses multiple fluorescent PCR technology, single tube double detection, and simultaneous determination of two independent genes of the new coronavirus to eliminate the risk of missing detection due to virus variation. At the same time, the non-specific interference of SARS2003 and BatSARS-like virus strains can be eliminated, and 2019-nCoV virus can be precisely targeted.
The kit is for use with:
- ABI Prism®7000/7300/7500/7900/Step One Plus
- iCycler iQ™4/iQ™5
- Smart Cycler II
- Bio-Rad CFX 96
- Rotor Gene™6000
- LightCycler®480 Instrument
NEW: Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real Time Multiplex RT-PCR Kit (Detection of 3 Genes; RR-0479-02-ZJ)
The Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (2019 nCoV) Real Time Multiplex RT PCR Kit is used for the qualitative detection of a novel coronavirus, which was identified in 2019 at Wuhan City, China, in upper respiratory tract specimens (nasopharyngeal extracts, deep cough sputum, etc.) and lower respiratory tract specimens (bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF)), etc.) by real time PCR systems. It detects N gene, E gene, and RdRp gene of 2019-nCoV.
With a single reaction this test is able to screen for coronaviruses under the subgenus Sarbecovirus, which includes 2019-nCoV, SARS-CoV and bat SARS-like coronaviruses, as well as to confirm 2019-nCoV.
RR-0479-02 has been approved by CFDA for emergency use and is WHO standard. A CE IVD certificate was granted for Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real Time Multiplex RT-PCR Kit on 26-02-2020.
The kit is for use with:
- PE5700, MJ-Opticon & other single-color systems
- ABI7000, ABI7300, ABI7500, ABI7900, ABI StepOne, StepOne plus, MJ-Opticon2, MJ-chromo4, MX3000P, MX3005P, Smart Cycler II, Rotor-Gene 6000, LightCycler 480, CFX 96, Slan 96, MIC, iCycler iQ4, iCycler iQ5 & other multi-color systems
