Safe rapid test for the detection of SARS-CoV-2

In order to make the detection of SARS-CoV-2 even more reliable, BAG Diagnostics has developed a rapid test that indicates whether sufficient cell material for valid test results is contained in the samples from trachial secretion / sputum. Previous tests incorrectly indicate the lack of sufficient cell material as a negative result.

In the new test kit, the RNA of SARS-CoV-2 is converted into cDNA in a one-step PCR procedure. This cDNA is then amplified in the same real-time PCR protocol. The three fluorescent dyes used are compatible with all common real-time cyclers.

The kit will consist of the following components:

  • Mastermix: transcription + amplification (
  • Reconstitution buffer (
  • Primer-Probe Mixture (
    • Colour 1: Virus gene 1 (FAM)
    • Colour 2: Virus gene 2 (HEX)
    • Colour 3: Cell control (CFR610) (housekeeping gene)
  • Positive Control (SARS-CoV-2 Positive Control) (

The first test kits have already been distributed. Further information:
