GG COVID-19 Real-Time Triplex PCR kit
The GG COVID-19 Triplex Real-Time PCR Kit was designed to detect open reading frame (ORF1ab）and nucleoprotein (N) based on the genomic database of COVID-19. Reverse transcription and RT-PCR are carried out sequentially in the same tube.
All components required for reaction are added during setup, and there is no need to add additional components once the reaction has been started, which is a very fast and will give satisfactory results in most cases. This product contains polymerase, reverse transcriptase, dNTPs, 5x reaction buffer, RNase inhibitor, specific primers and probes for detection except template. You just need add distilled water and template for RT-PCR and its procedure is very simple.
The kit uses TaqMan based real-time PCR technique to conduct in vitro reverse transcription of SARS-CoV-2 RNA, DNA amplification and fluorescence detection. The assay targets specific genomic regions of SARS-CoV-2: nucleocapsid (N) gene and ORF1ab. The TaqMan probes for the two amplicons are labeled with FAM and Texas red fluorescent dyes, respectively, to generate target-specific signals. The assay includes an RNA internal control (PBGD) to monitor the processes from nucleic acid extraction to fluorescence detection. The IC probe is labeled with VIC fluorescent dye to differentiate its fluorescent signal from SARS-CoV-2 targets. The kit showed excellent performance (>95% sensitivity and specificity in detection of SARS-COV-2 and LOD of 5 to 100 copies).
During the validation process, the kit showed excellent performance (100% sensitivity and specificity in detection of SARS-COV-2 and LOD of 5 to 100 copies) in clinical and performance evaluation carried out according to FDA EUA guidelines with clinical specimens and materials from BEI Resources (Manassas, VA, USA) and more.
