Xpert qDetect COVID-19 is a qRT-PCR kit for the detection of SARS-CoV-2, based on real-time PCR assays for N1, N2 and RP. It is for the use of COVID19 screening tests or the evaluation of anti-viral drug efficacy. Selected targets, corresponding primer sequences and probes are according to the protocol published by the US CDC. Check your National government´s guidelines and recommendations to see which specific viral targets should be detected in your country, as they may be different. This product is for research only (RUO) and is to be used by trained laboratory professionals only. Xpert qDetect COVID-19 is intended for the in vitro detection and quantification of SARS-CoV-2 RNA, previously isolated from human nasopharyngeal/tracheal/oropharyngeal apirates, swabs or washes, or sputum specimens (among others), in a one-step qRT-PCR reaction targeting 2 viral targets (N1 and N2) using viral target specific primers and Taqman probe technology.
