Molecular assay: Real-time PCR is used to detect RNA from SARS-CoV-2 virus.Emergent SARS-CoV-2 Variants
Siemens-Healthineers has an ongoing Global Surveillance Program in place.
Literature and the GISAID database are monitored to assess for new variants with the potential to affect the performance of the FTD SARS-CoV-2 Assay.
The ORF1ab and the N gene of SARS-CoV-2 are used as targets in this assay.
The FTD SARS-CoV-2 Assay detects the main variants and clades of SARS-CoV-2 (including alpha, beta, gamma, and delta) that are currently circulating with a 100% detection rate.
Features and Benefits:
Kit comprised of a single-well dual-target assay for the specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
Designed for high sensitivity, specificity, and inclusivity
Covers highly conserved regions within ORF1ab and N gene
Emergent SARS-CoV-2 variants are detected
Uses the same assay setup protocol and thermal-cycling profile as all FTD respiratory disease kits
