01 Why 2019-nCoV is being an issue throughout the world?
First reported from Wuhan, China, on 31 December 2019, 2019-nCoV is the cause of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and generally spreads through human-to-human contact or respiratory droplet infection from coughs and sneezes and it is thought to have a zoonotic origin. The symptoms of COVID-19 include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In severe cases, it can lead to pneumonia, severe respiratory acute syndrome, kidney failure and even death. Due to its high contagiousness and severeness, rapid detection of the virus should be performed as quickly as possible for proper medication and treatment.
02 Better detection assay to enhance your testing efficiency
Real-time PCR is one of the most well-known methods with good sensitivity and high accuracy for disease diagnostics. However, this technology used to have some disadvantages such as long turn-around-time or complicated workflow. Genesystem is proud to introduce SMARTCHEK® novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) detection kit which is based on biochip sample format and provides relatively short turn-around-time with simple workflow while it offers key benefits of real-time PCR tests. The standard turn-around-time is 45 minutes using UF-300 real-time PCR platform of Genesystem. SMARTCHEK® novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) detection kit has been developed to detect both N gene and RdRP gene of SARS-CoV-2. The primer pairs and probes for the detection of these two target genes are pre-labeled in the wells of the test chip so that user doesn't need to pipette primers and probes for running the test. Consult the experts of Genesystem for possible assay customization.
CONFIGURATION OF TEST CHIP
Primers and probes for detection of N gene of SARS-CoV-2 are labeled in well number 2, 4, 6 and 8 while primers and probes for detection of RdRP gene of SARS-CoV-2 are labeled in well number 3, 5, 7 and 9. Well number 1 is for running no template control and well number 10 is for running positive control. With this configuration, 4 samples can be tested per a run. ※ Each well includes Internal Positive control.
Configuration of the chip such as number of tests per a chip or inclusion of extraction tool (direct lysis buffer) can be customized in accordance with the user’s requirements.
