LifeDireX - QP019R-0100
COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit (IVD)
In view of the joint global efforts of advancing collaborative research in diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccination in the fight against the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic, Bio-Helix has specifically developed the LifeDireX COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit for human respiratory tract specimens. The kit is characterized by:
(1) High specificity for the RdRP and N target markers as recommended by WHO and US CDC;
(2) Data obtained in less than 2 hours; and
(3) Compatible with standard RT-qPCR machines (ABI 7500, Bio-Rad CFX96, QuantStudio’s 7 Flex).
》Gene Expression (mRNA) Analysis
》Copy Number Analysis
》SNP Genotype Analysis
A testing of limit of detection (LoD) concentration was carried out with the N gene, 20 copies/reaction.
Our product COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit (IVD) Catalog Number: QP019R-0100 shows a sensitivity equals to 20 copies per reaction using CFX96™ Touch Real-Time PCR Detection System.
The COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit (IVD) is intended for use by qualified, trained clinical laboratory personnel specifically instructed and trained in the techniques of real-time RT-PCR and in vitro diagnostic procedures. Proper collection of specimens is the most important step in the laboratory diagnosis of infectious disease. A specimen that is not collected correctly may lead to false negative test results. All testing for SARS-CoV-2 should be conducted in consultation with a healthcare provider.
Q: Which genes does the Kit target?
A: It covers 3 genes: N, RdRP, and RP genes
Q: What are the shipment measurements?
A: We want to make sure our kits get to the destination at a cooling temperature, therefore we use Dry Ice and Ice packs in combination.
Q: Can we run the kit in any equipment?
A: Our kit is compatible with RT-qPCR machine standards and our selected one is Bio-Rad CFX96. Please let us know which machine you are using. You are welcome to try the machine of your choice.
