- A qualitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) kit which enables simultaneous detection of two COVID-19 specific regions from its non-structural polypeptide in a single reaction.
- Contains all the necessary PCR reagents for rapid, sensitive and specific detection using target-specific primers and double-labelled hydrolysis probes.
- Enables detection of the human housekeeping gene, GAPDH, as an Internal Control (IC) to identify possible PCR inhibitors from sample processing.
- Validated Sample Types (as recommended by CDC)
- Nasopharyngeal wash/ aspirate or nasal aspirate
