The product is designed as a PCR additive that improves the yield and specificity of the PCR reaction and allows amplification of difficult targets (eg, sequences with >70% GC pairs).
The assays can detect SARS-CoV-2 (the virus associated with COVID-19) variants of concern, including P.1, B.1.351 and B.1.1.7, by distinguishing specific mutations in SARS-CoV-2 using reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR).
With the RapidFinder Meat ID range, food testing laboratories can provide peace of mind through a simple, flexible workflow that returns same-day results.
GeneCopoeia's CytoCt RT-qPCR System enables users to analyse gene expression by real-time RT-qPCR directly from 10–100,000 cultured cells either in tubes or 96-well plates without any RNA purification.
The Thermo Scientific RapidFinder Salmonella species, Typhimurium and Enteritidis Multiplex Flex Kit workflow is said to be the only validated, certified system that can identify Salmonella species as well as differentiate between the serovars Enteritidis and Typhimurium.
The Thermo Scientific SARS-CoV-2 PCR Workflow for food packaging and environmental surfaces is a complete end-to-end workflow, encompassing sampling, sample preparation and detection.
The Applied Biosystems TaqCheck SARS-CoV-2 Fast PCR Assay uses raw saliva samples and is designed to simplify lab workflows using instruments that are widely available to deliver data quickly.
Tecan has launched the Crescendo cDNA Synthesis for qPCR system to provide increased sensitivity for low-input applications. It uses Tecan's Single Primer Isothermal Amplification (SPIA) technology to generate large quantities of cDNA from as little as 500 pg of total RNA.
The Xfree COVID-19 Direct RT-PCR test is a complete test in a single vial, lyophilised in the BioGX Sample-Ready format. Just add water and the patient sample, and run the test on a validated real-time PCR instrument.
Bio-Rad Laboratories' CFX Opus 96 and CFX Opus 384 Real-Time PCR Systems are suitable for research and genomic testing as well as in pathogen detection and infectious disease testing.
The kit contains all the components necessary for sensitive quantification of DNA libraries prior to next-generation sequencing (NGS) with Illumina platforms.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced a highly automated, real-time PCR solution designed to analyse up to 6000 samples in a single day to meet increasing global demand for COVID-19 testing.
Digital PCR (dPCR) is the latest standard for absolute quantification of nucleic acids without the need for a DNA calibrator.
A portable, easy-to-use, point-of-care diagnostic system for COVID-19 can deliver patients their test results around one hour from the time of their nasal swab.
AirClean Systems AC600 Series PCR Workstations combine ISO 5 HEPA-filtered air with UV light irradiation for a useful DNA/RNA manipulation and amplification work area.
