Coronavirus Testing Kit (IgG/IgM) | COVID-19-One Step RT PCR Kit

Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented damage on both health and economic fronts. As on date, there are more than 5 million confirmed cases and 345,000+ deaths attributed to the virus. World over, 40 countries are in partial or full lockdown. Speedy containment of the pandemic is the need of the hour. During this time, testing will need to be ramped up multifold, and RT-PCR tests remain the gold standard for diagnosis. An indigenous test that can be manufactured at scale, while also offering significant cost and time savings as a multiplex RT-PCR test, is the need of the hour. Meril adds its contribution of Unboxing hope for the world with the CE approved RT PCR kit that saves cost and time.

India's first Multiplex RT PCR testing

Meril COVID-19 One Step RT-PCR Kit is a Real-Time RT-PCR Detection Kit based on Multiplexing gene detection that identifies and detects the novel coronavirus (SARS COV-2) nucleic acids (RNA) in human serum nasopharyngeal, Oropharyngeal and throat swab samples. The result can be used to assist diagnosis of patients with COVID-19 infection and provide molecular diagnostic basis for infected patients. Product been Evaluated by National Institute of Virology (NIV), the kit has a simple work flow and no cross-reactivity with other respiratory viruses.

Meril COVID-19 One Step RT-PCR Kit is based on dual-target gene design, thus allowing the user to detect two viral genes and one internal control gene in a single tube. ORF1ab gene and nucleoprotein N gene are used as conformational genes to detect the presence of SARS COV-2 virus in patent sample. RNAs P gene is used as an internal control. The kit has high accuracy with high sensitivity and specificity and does not have any cross reactivity with other respiratory viruses. The limit of detection is 5 RNA copies/reaction.

With all reagents available including controls, an assay time of 65 mins and compatibility with a wide range of open PCR systems(Applied Biosystems (ABI) 7500, Roche LightCycler 480, Shanghai Hongshi SLAN-96P, QIAGEN Rotor Gene Q or other PCR instruments with FAM, HEX/VIC, RED/ROX channels)

Meril COVID-19 One Step RT-PCR is a easy to use kit providing accurate repeatable and reproducible results.
