Background: Coronaviruses are positive single-stranded RNA viruses of the family Coronaviridae. Several different strains of coronaviruses are currently known to infect humans (HCoV-229E, HCoV-NL63, HCoV-OC43, HCoV-HKU1, MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, SARS-CoV-2, NcoV and HCoV-EMC). Strains HCoV-229E, HCoV-NL63, HCoV-OC43, MERS-CoV and HCoV-HKU1 cause cold, upper respiratory infection, bronchiolitis and pneumonia in humans. SARS-CoV, a beta coronavirus, causes the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). SARS-CoV-2 is a beta coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019. The virus is responsible for the disease COVID-19 (corona virus disease 2019). Fever, cough and breathing difficulties are described as the most frequent initial symptoms, later on it can lead to pneumonia. The coronavirus spreads mainly by droplet and contact transmission. In most of the cases a mild course of infection can be observed, while more severe courses are observed in about 15%-20% of the cases, with a mortality rate of up to 3%. Description: This assay allows the discriminating of the SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 strains. Product Features: -Detection: RdRp gene of SARS-CoV-2. The kit DHUV02313 or DHUV02313x5 is necessary (but not included)
