Diatheva COVID-19 PCR kit is a one-step multiplex RT-PCR assay based on fluorescent probes labeled to confirm the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA thanks to the amplification of the ORF1b and N genes. The assay also includes the RNase P target as a positive internal control to evaluate for RNA extraction and the presence of PCR inhibitors.
The kit consists of all the reagents required for the analysis. Positive and negative PCR controls are included.
New generation kit:
● Two specific targets for SARS-CoV-2: ORF1b and N
● High reproducibility performance of results from low viral load samples
● Improved the stability of the endogenous internal control
● Correct reporting of the English, Brazilian and South African variants of the virus
