CoviDetect™ Multiplex Assay

INNOVATIVE METHOD TO DETECT COVID-19 ON REAL-TIME PCR

Based on WHO and CDC guidelines

Approved and validated by Novo Nordisk and Rigshospitalet

CoviDetect™ is a multiplex test for detection of COVID-19 on Real-Time PCR. It enables analysis of three times as many samples, using the same standard laboratory equipment. The risk of false positive results is decreased due to an improved target sensitivity and specificity, in contrast to standard assays.

Our multiplex assay allows amplification of Viral N1 and N2 genes and the human RNAse P internal control in a multiplex reaction, in a single tube. Therefore, the testing capacity is increased, while dependency on consumables is reduced.

CoviDetect™ is designed for use on open Real-Time PCR platforms by detection on FAM, HEX/VIC and Cy5 channels. It is validated on BaseTyper™ (our PCR instrument), LightCycler 480 II, ABI 7500™ and ViiA7™.
