What is the nucleic acid amplification test

SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid amplification test

The BioHermes SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid amplification test is a real-time RT-PCR test for the qualitative detection of nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2 in nasal, nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs from patients with signs and symptoms suggestive of COVID -19; SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid amplification test is a single-well dual target and one-step real-time fluorescence PCR assay that contains specific primers and probes for ORF1ab and N genes of SARS-CoV-2. The assay has a complete negative control, a positive control, and an internal control.

The application of this kit includes:

- Support of infection diagnosis in patients with suspected SARS-CoV-2;

- SARS-CoV-2 infection screening of a high-risk group;

-Rehabilitation assessment of COVID-19 patients.

The product features include:

-High sensitivity with LOD of 200 copies / ml

-No cross-reactivity with other pathogens: CoV229E, CovHKU1, CoVNL63, SARS-CoV, MERS or COV OC43

-Compatible for use with most mainstream PCR platforms

-Flexible for use with suitable commercial RNA extraction kits on the market

-dUTP & UDG system to prevent the carryover of enzymes in order to avoid contamination of the PCR amplicons

-Internal control system to rule out false negative results
