High Quality SARS-CoV-2 RNA Extraction

Positive Control Sample

Negative Control Sample

RT-qPCR analysis of total RNA isolated from sputum using the Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead Kit. Positive control sample was spiked with a non-infectious in vitro COVID-19 synthetic RNA. Negative control sample was not spiked with in vitro RNA. Samples were tested using primers targeting the human RNase P gene (“RNase P”, amplification control) or primers 2019 nCoV_N3 (CV-3).

Sample Compatibilities

Compatible with Nasopharyngeal swabs, Oropharyngeal swabs (e.g. throat swabs), sputum, samples collected into DNA/RNA Shield, samples collected in universal transport medium (UTM) or similar, and more.

Kit contains DNA/RNA Shield reagent demonstrated to inactivate the MERS-coronavirus, parvovirus, HIV, HSV-1 and HSV-2, and other pathogens.
