StrongStep® Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Multiplex Real-Time PCR Kit

Introduction
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment.  Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
 
Advantage
1 Quadruple detections of three independent genes of SARS-CoV-2 in a single tube.
Detection of conserved region of SARS-CoV-2’s ORF1ab gene, S gene and N gene, respectively, avoiding non-specific interference of SARS2003 and Bat SARS-like virus strains. An internal Control (IC) amplifying human RNase P gene was used to identify possible PCR inhibition, to measure extraction purity and to confirm the integrity of the PCR run.
 
2 Ready to use
The kit is supplied as ready-to-use lyophilized PCR beads, After adding water and  purified template, it can be tested on the machine.
 
3 Very strong thermal stability
The reagents are freeze-dried and sealed in vacuum bags. The kit can be stable at room temperature. After accelerating at 56 ° C for 9 weeks, the reagent form and performance remained unchanged.
 
4 Ambient temperature storage and transportation
No need for cold chain, no need to store at low temperature before opening to fully free up cold storage space.
 
 
Parameters
Sensitivity: 3.9 copies/uL
Sample types: nasopharyngeal swabs, oropharyngeal swabs, sputum and BALF
