AzureSeq One-Step Universal SARS-CoV-2 RT-qPCR Kit

A Rapid Test for SARS-CoV-2 Variants.

SeqOnce Biosciences manufactured this test for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2. Nucleic acids are isolated and purified from sample and then reverse transcribed into cDNA by combining the nucleic acid with the AzureSeq Direct One-Step Universal RT-qPCR Kit SARS-CoV-2 501Y Variant Assay master mix. This test assesses polymorphisms for SARS-CoV-2 variant N501Y(A23063T), differentiating between wild type and variant ,and presence of nucleocapsid N gene (N1), using RNaseP as a positive control for sample integrity.

  • Detects UK variant B.1.1.7, Brazilian variant p.1, and South African variant B.1.351/501Y.v2, specifically mutations at N501Y
  •   
  • CE marked, cleared for RUO
  • Single-tube reaction targeting the N1 nucleocapsid gene, both alleles of S gene N501Y (A23063T)
  • Kit includes RNaseP as a control
  •  
  • Does not require viral RNA extraction and has a rapid cycling protocol option, delivering sample to answer results in under 30 minutes
