The novel AUMED test kit RT-LAMP Assay SARS-CoV2 developed for diagnostics of the SARS-CoV-2 virus can be used for detection from isolated viral RNA samples, as well as for direct detection from primary samples without RNA isolation.
The innovative SARS-CoV-2 test kit developed by Protean is based on RT-LAMP (reverse transcription and loop-mediated isothermal amplification) technology and offers advanced speed, reliability, flexibility, and ease of use for SARS-CoV-2 detection.
RT-LAMP Assay Kit for Diagnostics of SARS-CoV-2
The AUMED test kit RT-LAMP Assay SARS-CoV2 offers significantly higher cost-effectivity compared to traditional PCR assays while providing the same sensitivity and specificity. SARS-CoV-2 tests can be performed in under 1 hour in isolated viral RNA samples or primary samples without RNA isolation.
The kit contains a reagent box for 45 tests, a 96-well PCR plate and a lid plate with the stain in a lightproof container. Diagnostics of SARS-CoV-2 can be performed in laboratories of any size without the need for a PCR cycler. Moreover, results can be read with the naked eye or on a mobile device. This offers a great level of convenience and ease of use for laboratories and staff, as well as a reduction of costs and process time.
SARS-CoV-2 detection direct from samples without RNA isolation
RNA isolation is complex, time-consuming, and labor-intensive. With the innovative AUMED test kit RT-LAMP Assay SARS-CoV2, the process can be skipped and reliable and sensitive results can be obtained directly from the primary samples, saving precious time and resources in the laboratory. The test’s sensitivity is equal with qPCR to Ct 36-38. In addition, based on isothermal amplification technology, it is possible to achieve a huge test throughput and have hundreds of samples analyzed at once.
RT-LAMP (reverse transcription and loop-mediated isothermal amplification)
An alternative to RT-qPCR, RT-LAMP (reverse transcription and loop-mediated isothermal amplification) enables amplification of nucleic acids with a high specificity, productivity and speed under isothermal conditions. The test results can be read reliably based on color change unaided by equipment.
Protean’s technology for simple detection of various pathogens and specific DNA and RNA sequences based on isothermal amplification also benefits from the company’s in-house production of amplification enzymes BstI DNA polymerase and ProRT Reverse Transcriptase and is fully compliant with CE IVD certification standards.
