Biomeme’s SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Go-Strips® Test detects the RNA of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This test detects two different SARS-CoV-2 genes and is conveniently multiplexed together with our RNA Process Control (RPC) for RNA extraction and RT-PCR.
Biomeme Go-Strips™ already contain lyophilized master mix, enzymes, and multiplexed primers/probes for the following triplex reaction:
RNA Process Control (MS2 bacteriophage)
Go-Strips® are pre-aliquoted, lyophilized strips optimized for outstanding performance in the field with no need for refrigeration, lab equipment, or mixing of wet reagents. They are designed to work with Biomeme's ultra-portable Franklin™ thermocyclers.
Each order includes the following:
|SARS-CoV-2 3-Well Go-Strips™
|Each well of each strip contains a 20µL lyophilized triplex reaction with master mix, primers and probes.
|32 (96 rxns)
|3-Well Void Filling Caps
|Each cap is used to seal your PCR reactions inside your Go-Strip® before placing into thermocycler.
|RNA Process Control (RPC) Kit
|Each kit contains a 2ml tube with a MS2 bacteriophage pellet inside, a 5ml tube with buffer inside, and a 1mL transfer pipette.
If you are looking for higher throughput solutions, take a look at Biomeme's SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Go-Plates® and Go-Vials® Test Kits. These kits are typically used with 96-well and 384-well systems.
This test is intended for the qualitative detection of RNA from SARS-COV-2 in nasopharyngeal, nasal, and oropharyngeal swab specimens and nasopharyngeal wash/aspirate or nasal aspirate specimens.
Best-in-class molecular in-vitro diagnostic test
Detects all COVID-19 variants of concern
A multiplexed reaction means that all 3 targets are in a single reaction. So, a single reaction equates to a single sample.
Includes a quantified exogenous positive control for RNA extraction and RT-PCR. It is a shelf-stable, lyophilized pellet of MS2 bacteriophage that you can expect to be detected at the same Cq every time.
Because each test is lyophilized, you are able to add more sample (“template”) to the test (20 µL) which will directly increase sensitivity without throwing off your reagent concentrations.
Most other assays require shipment on dry ice and storage in a -80°C freezer which can increase the risk of components going bad due to freeze and thaw cycles. With our test, there is no need for refrigeration, lab equipment, or mixing of wet reagents.
Most assays come in multiple components or in bulk and need to be mixed and aliquoted by an experienced molecular biologist, further increasing the risk of contamination. There is no mixing or aliquoting of components required with our test. It’s already taken care of.
