SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR kits

The CellInsightTM SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR test (REF#CM9001) is a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) test for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in respiratory specimens (such as: nasopharyngeal swabs) collected from individuals suspected of SARS-CoV-2 by their healthcare provider.

CellInsightTM SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR test (REF#CM9001) is intended for in vitro diagnostic use.

The CellInsightTM SARS-Cov-2 detection kit (REF#CM9001) is a multiplex real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for use on the Agilent AriaMX or BioRad CFX-96 Real-time PCR System for the qualitative detection of RNA from the nucleocapsid phosphoprotein gene (N-gene)  of the SARS-Cov-2 virus and the human RNase P gene. The primer and probe sets are based on the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC) assay for the detection of SARS-Cov-2 by amplifying two unique regions of the N Gene (i.e., N1 and N2). Detection of the human RNase P serves as an endogenous Sample Processing Control (SPC) and allows to verify the nucleic acid extraction procedures and serves as an internal amplification control. 

Process Controls available from CellMade (REF#CM9202) are treated as if they were patient samples. It is required to run at least one (1) External Positive Control and one (1) External Negative Control per analysis run.

The analytical sensitivity for the CellInsightTM SARS-Cov-2 detection kit (REF#CM9001) N1, N2 & RNase P Multiplex was determined as follows: 

  • Contrived positive samples (n=20) were generated using Process Controls available from CellMade (REF#CM9202);
  • Dilution series of Process Controls available from CellMade (REF#CM9202) were analyzed.
