COVID-19 Detection Workflow

Accurate diagnosis of COVID-2019 infection is through the use of real-time RT-PCR assays for the in vitro qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 in respiratory specimens. BioCat offers CE-IVD kits for the complete COVID-19 detection workflow, covering all steps from sample collection to PCR detection of SARS-CoV-2 and variants.

 

Flow Gradient Large

Swab or Saliva Sample Collection & Preservation

Safe collection, transport and preservation of respiratory samples. Preserved RNA, incl. viral RNA, is stable for 2 months at room temperature.

Isolation of Viral RNA from Respiratory Specimens

High-quality total RNA, including viral RNA, with no bias, from fresh and preserved saliva or swab samples.

SARS-CoV-2 Detection by Real-Time RT-PCR

Ready-to-use kits containing everything required for the detection of SARS-CoV-2-specific genes. Suitable for SARS-CoV-2 variants.

  • E/RdRP/RNase P - Charité/Berlin protocol recommended by WHO
  • N1/N2/RNase P - CDC protocol
  • N/ORF1ab/RNaseP

More Tools for SARS-CoV-2 Research

In addition to swab and saliva sample collection & preservation kits, virus RNA purification kits and RT-PCR detection kits, BioCat provides a variety of tools to accelerate SARS-CoV-2 research, including recombinant proteins and antibodies specific for SARS-CoV-2 and variants, immunoassays, inhibitor screening assays, NGS panels as well as compound libraries and antiviral agents.
