Swab specimen collection and handling

Gerbion swab specimen collection kit is one of the best adapted kits to detect the coronavirus. It meets the WHO recommendations for COVID-19 specimen collection & handling:  the virus inactivation due to the effect of the transport solution on the virus envelop and the preservation of the viral RNA due to the non-effect on the viral capsid and a stable pH ensure ideal protection of nucleic acids. The stored samples can be used in subsequent molecular experiments such as DNA/RNA extraction, qPCR testing or sequencing.

Coronavirus DNA/RNA isolation kits

RNA extraction has become a major bottleneck for COVID-19 diagnosis due to the limited availability of RNA extraction kits for preparing virus RNA from patient samples and the low-throughput nature of the extraction procedure.

NukEx PureRNA/DNA Kit is designed for rapid manual extraction of nucleic acids from a wide range of samples (e.g. human samples, veterinary samples, insects, food samples, etc.). Including Processing of blood, serum, plasma, urine, CSF, and swabs

The NukEx Complete MagRNA/DNA Kit is designed for rapid manual and automated extraction of nucleic acids. The kit is designed for use with automated magnetic processors (e.g. KingFisherâ„¢ Flex or Duo Prime, Microlab STAR, Freedom EVO).

These kits are designed for 100 and 200 isolations.

The extracted and purified nucleic acids can be used directly for downstream applications.

The Virellasars-Cov-2 Seqc Real Time RT-PCR Kit

The virellaSARS-CoV-2 seqc real time RT-PCR Kit is a screening assay for the simultaneous detection of RNA of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and other Betacoronaviruses (e.g. MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV) extracted from biological specimens.

This RT-qPCR Kit contains specific primers and dual-labeled probes for the amplification and simultaneous differentiation of RNA of SARS-CoV-2 (RdRP gene, WHO recommendation) and other Betacoronaviruses (e.g. MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, env gene) extracted from biological specimens.

The presence of nucleic acids is detected by an increase in fluorescence due to hydrolysis of the probes during amplification.

VirellaSARS-CoV-2 seqc real time RT-PCR Kit contains a Control RNA (Internal Process Control, IPC), which is detected in the same reaction by a HEX-labeled probe. It allows the detection of RT-PCR inhibition and acts as control, that the nucleic acid was isolated from the biological specimen.

Additionally, virellaSARS-CoV-2 seqc real time RT-PCR Kit contains an Internal System Control (ISC). The ISC consists of primers and probes for the detection of a house keeping gene (Beta-actin, multi species) in the eluate from a biological specimen. The ISC helps preventing false negative results due to insufficient sample drawing or transport.

This Kits can work with different qPCR machines: LightCycler 480II, Stratagene Mx3000P / Mx3005, AriaMxBio-Rad CFX9, AriaMxBio-Rad CFX96 and ABI 7500.

The reagents supplied are sufficient for 32 or 96 reactions and contains: Reaction mix, enzyme, positive control, negative control and control RNA.

VirellaSARS-CoV-2 seqc real time RT-PCR Kits are approved by the World health Organization (WHO)
