Great product, easy to use.
Application Area: Development of in house testing (not patient samples)
"The kit was super straightforward and easy to use. All materials fit into the CDC published method for COVID-19 testing. No issues with getting reproducible results."
Emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants will require global monitoring to ensure diagnostic tests, vaccines, and other antiviral therapies remain effective. As the virus’ mutations change its transmissibility and/or severity, public health control measures can stay ahead of the curve by analysing a subset of positive COVID-19 patient samples. These genomic surveillance programs include genotyping and sequencing the mutations, which can help characterise known variants and discover novel variants.
