Viral RNA extraction for COVID-19 detection

The Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead Kit offers a simple protocol for high-throughput automated viral RNA extraction, enabling extraction of high quality SARS-CoV-2 RNA in just 1-2 hours (depending on the automation platform).

This kit contains DNA/RNA Shield reagent demonstrated to inactivate the MERS-coronavirus, parvovirus, HIV, HSV-1 and HSV-2, and other pathogens.

Free custom scripts and technical support is available, with rapid deployment on Tecan®, Hamilton® and Thermo Fisher Scientific KingFisher™.

Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead kit is for research use only (RUO).

High quality SARS-CoV-2 RNA extraction

High quality SARS-CoV-2 RNA extraction

RT-qPCR analysis of total RNA isolated from sputum using the Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead Kit. Positive control sample was spiked with a non-infectious in vitro COVID-19 synthetic RNA. Negative control sample was not spiked with in vitro RNA. Samples were tested using primers targeting the human RNase P gene (“RNase P”, amplification control) or primers 2019 nCoV_N3 (CV-3).
