COVID-19 is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Direct detection of the viral RNA can be performed using methods that amplify nucleic acids (Figure 1), such as reverse transcription (RT) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP).
RayBiotech's COVID-19 Rapid Isothermal PCR Kit is suitable for the qualitative in vitro detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid.
RayBiotech's COVID-19 1-Step High Throughput PCR Kit is suitable for the in vitro detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid in saliva or throat swab samples. Our unique 1-Step Nucleic Acid Stabilization Buffer preps crude saliva or throat swabs for use directly in the PCR reaction, without laborious RNA extraction steps.
