Linear Extraction and Sensitive Detection of SARS-CoV-2
RTqPCR analysis of viral RNA with primers targeting 2019 nCOV_N3 (CV-3). Swabs samples collected in DNA/RNA Shield were spiked with non-infectious in vitro SARS-CoV-2 synthetic RNA and extracted with the Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead kit using an automated liquid handler platform (Tecan Fluent 1080).
Emergency Use Authorized and CE-IVD for Diagnostic Use
The Quick-DNA/RNA Viral Magbead Kits (R2140-E, R2141-E) are Emergency Use Authorized and CE-IVD for diagnostic use. The kits are used in Zymo Research’s SARS-CoV-2 workflow and can extract viral DNA/RNA from any biological sample.
High-Throughput and Automated for Any Platform
What People Are Saying
The Quick-DNA/RNA™ Viral MagBead kit is designed for high-throughput purification of viral DNA and/or RNA from plasma, serum, urine, cell culture media, blood, saliva, cellular suspensions, biopsies, swab and fecal samples stored in DNA/RNA Shield™ (for sample collection, nucleic acid preservation and inactivation of pathogens). The kit also features a buffer system that facilitates complete viral particle lysis for efficient nucleic acid isolation. Small (> 50 nt) and large (> 200 kb) DNA and RNA are bound to magnetic beads, washed and eluted. The isolated high-quality nucleic acids are ready for all downstream applications such as Next-Gen sequencing, hybridization-based and RT/qPCR detection.

We used this product for SARS-COV-2 RNA extraction on a 96 well scale. The method is quite simple to follow, and the resulting RNA had great purity. Zymo is great to work with because their customer support team is very responsive and caring. I was surprised at the cost of the product as well - it easily fit into my lab’s budget and saved me a ton of time.

I’m a technician with limited assay experience, and I found this product easy to use, and greatly improved the overall efficiency of our analysis. I found it to be a great deal, and am looking forward to continuing my use of this product as our COVID research continues.
