Application Note: Rapid SARS-CoV-2 RNA extraction from saliva samples
18 November 2020
Nanotrap® Virus Particles capture and concentrate multiple strains of influenza, RSV, and coronavirus, thus enhancing detection of those viruses, even in co-infection scenarios. Here, it is show that Nanotrap® Magnetic Virus Particles can capture and concentrate heat-inactivated SARSCoV-2 from saliva samples that simulate patient samples. These results suggest that using Nanotrap® particles can improve sensitivity of saliva-based testing for SARS-CoV-2.
